  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4400)
It was erudite, eloquent and reflected the author's passion for Yeats' poetry, whilst at the same time acknowledging the difficulties this poetry can present to the student. S Kearns, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
This resource is excellent in terms of close-reading and analysis of form and structure. It's very nice to see Yeats' esoteric interests dealt with as we move through each poem, rather than in a single section elsewhere, because this lends a sense of their integration into his thinking. It is simply and beautifully constructed. B Coulthard, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
"I would certainly recommend it to anyone teaching Yeats." J Beaumont, Head of KS5 and Ind. Reviewer
The analysis of each poem was thoughtful, interesting and often illuminating. I liked the focus on attentive close reading. The sections on thematic concerns and exam questions are useful, as was the material on Yeats as a Romantic.N Bowen, HoD and Independent Reviewer
