Reader's Thoughts


Why don't college professors tell you that Yeats believed in magic when they have you read his poems? Kind of important. Don't ya think?


One of my favorite quotes: "Later I heard him talk of her as a man talk of something he cannot keep silence over because it is in all his thoughts."I'm positive I read this for some course.


I was first introduced to WBY in university by my professor. He remains one of the few poets that remain dear to my soul.

an excellent collection of work to cobble together to make an autobiography. worth reading just for the journal extracts 2/3 of the way in.

Mr. Yeats definitely lived in some interesting times. It's probably a good thing to know something about Ireland from that time to better appreciate the book but one can still enjoy it for what it is. My only wish was that he would of talked more about his involvement with the Golden Dawn. He touched on meeting Mathers and being involved with him and some of his own experiments but that's it.
