    Nobelpreisträger William Butler Yeats schrieb berührende Liebeslyrik, er beschwor die keltische Dämmerung und ein mythisches Byzanz. Seine stilistische Vielfalt - vom Volkslied bis zum formstreng komponierten Liebesgedicht - spiegelt sich in den unterschiedlichen Lesungen wider: In den kraftvollen Rezitationen des Autors und Dylan Thomas' sowie den legendären englischsprachigen Lesungen aus den Fünfzigerjahren. Hanns Zischler, Bibiana Beglau, August Diehl u. a. bringen deren Zauber in den deutschen Übersetzungen neu zum Klingen.
