Collected Poems book. Blake’s early poems, in particular, are totally free of cynicism and disenchantment; rather, they are direct, honest, wide-eyed. To see the World in a Grain of Sand And a Heaven in a Wild Flower, Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand And Eternity in an hour. Married to this total innocence, however, is an intense spirituality.

This handsome leather-bound edition of William Butler Yeats' (1865-1939) poems (selected) by the Easton Press (1976) is wondrous to behold. It features fine leather in a light green with beautiful gilt details on the cover featuring roses and flowers. The signature trademarks of the Easton Press leather-bound editions are here: moire endleaves, a satin ribbon page-marker, and this particular title is part of the limited edition series issues by the Easton Press.

The poems are selected, edited, and introduced by William York Tindall. In addition, as a bonus, this edition features beautiful drawings with occasional color tints by Robin Jacques. There are both full-page illustrations and half-page illustrations that enhance this edition. If you are a lover of W.B. Yeats' poems as I am, you will adore this aesthetically pleasing edition.

Contents:
Crossways, 1889

I am not much of a poetry fan but have always loved the writings of William Blake. Here is a free version of some of his works. It is readable, and the fact that it is free prevents me from complaining too much.

The formatting is terrible. There is no table of contents. There are no hyperlinks. These problems make it difficult to know what exactly is in the book, and it makes it hard to find what you are looking for. As far as I can tell this collection contains the entirety of Songs of Innocence and Experience and a few other poems. Also there are few line breaks. An 8 line stanza is often seen as a single paragraph with semicolons separating the original lines. With any other poet this would make the book unreadable, but Blake's words are so rhythmic and clear that you can easily read them out loud or silently even when formatted poorly on the page. Some reviewers have complained that there is different text and/or missing poems when compared to other versions. I won't argue with them because, although I have read Blake several times, I am no expert.

So if you have to read Songs of Innocence and Experience right now and don't have any money, go ahead and get this book. You will enjoy it. But in the long run it is much better to get a better formatted version - preferably a hardbound volume that will look beautiful on your shelf and provide satisfying poetic readings for years to come.

Blake has a wondrous ability to look satirically at some objects in his writing. While steadfastly and straightforward writing devout religious conjuring.
His abilities in broaching many controversial subjects with poise and grace are simply amazing.
Reading Blake's poetic genius is exposed in nearly every line of this book. His caring and compelling rhymes are a gift from years gone by.

A reasonably good collection of the more popular works of William Blake. I picked it up because I could not see a list of contents , but it didn't contain the palm I was looking for . Still worth getting.

I like the rhymes that seem to appeal to my wife who is unable to speak. Most contemporary poetry is free verse and doesn't appeal to her.

a rare book that I've bought twice - gave the first copy to my daughter. The intro is not exactly Yeats- ian bc it includes a lot of scholarly stuff he got from other people -- but the selection is him right through. I wrote that last week about the intro from a distant memory of when I first got the book, but on re-reading it is not so. The intro IS Yeats-ian and carries the irreplaceable authority of one great artist writing about another one. No academic reviewer can ever do this. But it is also, as someone has observed about such commentary, (Virgil Thomson in the NY Times?) passionately prejudiced. I would not want it any other way.

A fine collection in an attractive if slightly worn cover. But that makes it look like I've read and enjoyed it so I'm pleased.
Only disappointment was doesn't seem to have some of the works I know, however tiger tiger, poison tree, and most of my favorites are here. No I can read and reflect on them when I am on the train, without having to carry the book as well.
