I was looking forward to reading this collection of Yeats’ poems. I hadn’t read anything before, but had of course heard of him. However, I found I was a little bit disappointed, especially by his love-poems. They seemed rather simple to me and either way didn’t resonate with me. His poems concerning the situation in Ireland, I liked best in this collection, but I don’t think I will be reading more of Yeats.
