Selected Poetry

Authors: W B Yeats, A Norman Jeffares

Publisher: Pan Books (1974)

Few have lived their ideas so passionately and nobly as W.B. Yeats in his love affairs, politics and poetry. From his youth in the 1880s, a fertile dreamer rediscovering and remaking the Irish tradition, he grew into a great and innovative poet of the twentieth century. This selection of Yeats's work includes the final book from the unjustly neglected narrative poem The Wanderings of Oisin and a number of lyrics from Yeats's work as poetic dramatist. This edition breaks new ground by allowing the reader to engage with a dozen poems in alternative versions; in many other cases it provides significant variants, so that Yeats's struggle to revise his poetry can be experienced with unusual immediacy. It also includes explanatory and textual notes for each poem.

Song Of Myself

Author: Walt Whitman

Part of a series: Penguin 60s Classics

Publisher: Penguin Books (1995)

A visionary poem that celebrates the miracle of nature and human life. Walt Whitman worked as a journeyman printer, journalist and newspaper editor before publishing his first book of poetry, Leaves of Grass. Whitman’s sprawling lines and cataloguing technique, as well as his belief that poetry should embrace the lowly and the profane, led some to call him the first truly American poet. Song of Myself, the opening poem from Leaves of Grass, which is published in Penguin Classics, is reprinted here from the original 1855 edition.

Songs Of Innocence And Songs Of Experience

Author: William Blake

Publisher:

Blake was one of the finest craftsmen of his time, an artist for whom art and poetry were inextricably linked. He was an indepedent and rebellious thinker, who abhorred pretention and falsity in others. His Songs of Innocence are products of this innocent imagination untainted by worldliness, while the Songs of Experience resulted from his feelings of indignation and pity for the sufferings of mankind. The Songs of Innocence and Experience , containing some of Blake's finest and best-loved poems, are presented here in the form which best satisfied the high expectations of his poetic and artistic aspirations. The fifty-four plates which Blake originallly etched and coloured by hand are faithfully reproduced with the same delicacy and dimensions as the artist created them.

Sorley MacLean: Collected Poems

Authors: Christopher Whyte, Emma Dymock

Publisher: Polygon (2011)

'Convincingly demonstrates why MacLean was as important an influence on the badachd as Eliot and Pound were on English-language poetry' - Kevin MacNeil, Sunday Herald 'The poetry event of the year ... a fitting tribute to a poet of MacLean's towering stature' - The Herald 'A really good buy for lovers of poetry, of Gaelic, and for those of us who still miss Maclean's insight into the world around us' - Argyll FM This Collected Works of Sorley MacLean brings together published poetry from MacLean's own edited volumes of poetry, poetry previously published in various magazines, literary journals and anthologies, and poetry which has never been published before. The poems will be given in their original Gaelic with English translations. The volume opens with a biographical summary of Maclean's childhood on Raasay, his life at university and war experiences, and examines MacLean's effect on Gaelic and Scottish literature, and his literary, political and philosophical influences, which included Gaelic traditional song, Romanticism and Modernism, as well as Communism and Fascism.
