This concentrated dose of the mystical wisdom of W.B. Yeats offers pleasure and insight to all who partake of it. "For nothing can be sole or whole / That has not been rent."
Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Paul Muldoon carries on the influential tradition of Irish mystical poetry with the great words of William Butler Yeats. Yeats had a lifelong interest in Spiritualism; his work is rich in tarot and occult imagery. He asserted that a number of poems were "given" to him by supernatural powers. Yeats's fierce ideas and images, coupled with his exquisite sense of rhyme, make for quotes that seekers will want to commit to memory. As Paul Muldoon explains, this poet is "supremely positioned to help us make sense of both the things of this world, the Otherworld, and the vast region between."
