- From his youth in the 1880s, a fertile dreamer rediscovering and remaking the Irish tradition and resisting the temptations of Victorianism, Yeats grew up into a great and innovative poet.
- This new selection includes the final book from the unfairly neglected narrative poem "The Wanderings of Oisin" and a number of lyrics from Yeats's work as poetic dramatist, together with other short pieces which have not achieved canonical status.
- It breaks new ground by allowing the reader to engage with a dozen poems in alternative versions; in many other cases it provides significant variants, so that Yeats's struggle to revise his poetry and to 'remake' himself can be experienced with unusual immediacy.
