 About the Book 

All things can tempt me from this craft of verse:One time it was a womans face, or worse-The seeming needs of my fool-driven land-Now nothing but comes readier to the handThan this accustomed toil.--From All Things Can Tempt MeNobel Prize winnerMoreAll things can tempt me from this craft of verse:One time it was a womans face, or worse-The seeming needs of my fool-driven land-Now nothing but comes readier to the handThan this accustomed toil.--From All Things Can Tempt MeNobel Prize winner W.B. Yeats laid the foundations for an Irish literary revival, drawing inspiration from his countrys folklore, the occult, and Celtic philosophy. A writer of both poems and plays, he helped found Dublins famed Abbey Theatre. The poems here provide an example of his lifes work and artistry, beginning with verses such as The Stolen Child from his debut collection Crossways (written when he was 24) through Why Should Not Old Men Be Mad? from On the Boiler, published a year prior to his death.
