Yeats Reads

It is obligatory. Whenever you can, listen to the poet reading his own work. Yeats and Pound were peculiar, and Eliot was a genius. This one has a bit of introduction, so you can contrast his speaking voice and his reading voice. Remember people used to make fun C.S. Lewis & company for chanting poetry. Idiots. It is music, of course it is chanted–though not badly, of course.
