W.B. Yeats

The Life & Works of W.B. Yeats

Read by Jim Norton, Denys Hawthorne, Nicholas Boulton & Marcella Riordan


The Life of William Butler Yeats is a remarkable one – poet, playwright, essayist, politician, occultist, astrologer, founder of a national theatre, voluminous correspondent, lover, husband and father. It was a life that extended to a packed, sometimes frantic seventy-three years and left us with what many consider to be one of the finest collections of poetry from one voice.
