At last, one of the giants of 20th-century literature has a collection that reflects the full range of his talents: the first single-volume edition of William Butler Yeats's best poetry, drama, prose fiction, autobiographical writing, essays, and criticism.

For years, English professors across the country have been asking for a "portable Yeats" -- one source for all of the Yeats work they've wanted to teach. Here it is, for students and all Yeats admirers, a balanced, definitive collection of the very best of the writer's work in every genre.

Yeats scholar Richard J. Finneran has carefully chosen the best and most representative selections from the body of poetry, drama, memoirs, critical essays, and writings on mysticism that have established Yeats as one of the greatest writers in the history of the English language.
