Summary

This is the second collection of poetry by WB Yeats, first published in 1893, with a new foreword by poet and actor Tim Dalgleish.

This is a beautiful collection of poetry that translates the 2,000-year-old mythos of Ireland into words that inspire and touch the mind, body, and spirit of any listener. This audio narration includes music between the poems which underscores and enhances the mood of romance and thoughtfulness.

The rose stands for Ireland, but also for Yeats unrequited love Maud Gonne. The poems are romantic and symbolic and once read or listened to, root themselves in one's psyche. The famous "Lake Isle of Innisfree" is included, but essentially, Yeats intended this poetry to be experienced as a collection as presented here in its original published format. The scent of mystical poetic genius rises from every word. This is the Celtic Twilight brought to life.

Adequate

Everything is good, but the music is annoying. No audio book should have music playing.
