4.0 out of 5 stars A good handbook for students and general readers, June 3, 2000
This review is from: Secret Rose Love Poems of W B Yeats (Hardcover)
Professor Norman Jeffares is an authority on Irish literature. He has lectured in Trinity College, Dublin and written and edited the works of many Irish writers, including Joyce, Yeats, Swift, Farquhar, Goldsmith to name a few. He has written two biographies of W. B. Yeats. In this collection, Norman Jeffares displays the depth and complexity of Yeats' romantic poetry and how they have progressed over the years.
It is well known that Yeats led a movement that stimulated new understanding of Irish literature and nationalism in the late 1800s and early 20th centaury. Here, Jeffares focuses his attention on the contribution Yeats made towards romantic poetry.
The book contains a useful introduction containing Yeats' biographical notes with important events and people who influenced his work.
The poems in this anthology are presented in chronological order and categorised under three headings: romantic idealism (early poems); romantic realism (poems written over the next 15 years); and complex harmonies (poems inspired by his wife).
This anthology is a good handbook for students and general readers interested in Yeats' romantic poetry.
