"For death who takes what man would keep, / Leaves what man would lose."
Yeats' "Last Poems and Plays" might be what he would lose, but is a stunning collection we can be grateful to keep. Here is Yeats' subtle music, his striking scenes, his mythic landscapes of bronze sculptures or heady gardens or something like a window, framing the timeless drama of the world. This collection of his late work demonstrates Yeats' undeniable discursive mastery for inhabiting the literary imagination, and the immortal voice that comes to life in his work.
