S.J. Henschel
AudioFile, September 2014

Narrators Jim Norton and Denys Hawthorn make this compilation of W.B. Yeats’s life and poetry a listening joy. From the lovely tenor voice that opens the audiobook to the recitation of many of the most beloved of the poet’s offerings, listeners will be enthralled. As well as providing captivating interpretations of individual poems, Norton and Hawthorn deliver the prose with equal passion without ever overdramatizing. They keep the biographical aspects engrossing as they detail the events in Yeats’ life that influenced his poetry. Top-notch listening for poetry lovers and those new to Yeats and the Irish tradition. © 2014 AudioFile
