Born in Dublin in 1865, Yeats drew strength from the Irish tradition, as can be seen in this special audiobook, which presents the most important poems in the context of his life and ambitions. His poetic urgency was fueled by an active and varied life, as he gained his inspiration from the men and women he knew, classical sources and contemporary politics."@en ;
