W.B. YEATS Poems

by | Read by T.P. McKenna

Poetry & Drama • 1.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1995

These 52 pieces span the poet's entire career but predominately invoke the image of a man looking back with resolve at circumstances altered by time's passage. The overriding mood is a stoic, mild melancholy. One notable exception is "The Fiddler of Dooney." T.P. McKenna matches its energy with a brighter, less formal character voice than any he employs for the other selections. The remainder he delivers in variations of a refined yet unadorned straightforward style that reflects the inner voice of Yeats quite well. McKenna's dulcet tones are authentically Irish, entirely intelligible to American ears, and absolutely worthy to this task. D.J. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 07]
