In the Seven Woods

Gelesen von Kasper

(4,75 Sterne; 6 Bewertungen)

In the Seven Woods (1904) is Yeats's first twentieth-century poetry collection. Its fourteen poems show him moving steadily away from the decisively Romantic diction of his earlier work. Here we hear a poetic voice that is at once more individual, colloquial and dramatic than previously. In addition, several poems sound a note of bitter lamentation over the marriage in 1903 of Maud Gonne, Yeats's great love and muse, to John MacBride. (Summary by Kasper Nijsen) (0 hr 18 min)
