Summary
"This selection includes the final book from the unjustly neglected narrative poem The Wanderings of Oisin and a number of lyrics from Yeats's work as poetic dramatist. This edition breaks new ground in presenting alternative versions of a dozen poems and a number of significant variants. It also includes explanatory and textual notes for each poem."--BOOK JACKET
