The Wild Swans at Coole (Version 2)

Gelesen von Peter Tucker

(3,5 Sterne; 2 Bewertungen)

A collection of poems from the mid-career of this renowned Irish poet, the title poem referring to the estate of his friend and mentor, Lady Gregory. The poems display Yeats' use of symbols (cat, hare, moon, etc), his attachment to the supernatural and Irish folklore, and his recourse to alter egos (Aherne and Robartes). They also exemplify his distinctive style of expression. (Summary by Peter Tucker) (1 hr 11 min)

Well read, but would have been much better if the name of the poem was announced before it was read.
