In the "Poet to Poet" series, a contemporary poet advocates a poet of the past or present whom they have particularly admired.

By their selection of verses and their critical reactions, the selectors offer intriguing insights into their own work. Here, Seamus Heaney selects W.B. Yeats.

Good selection of Yeats' peoms


Great selection of the writer's powerful poems

Central Coast NSW


One fine Irish poet selected by another


I revisit titles to refresh memory, enliven senses, enlarge knowledge or simply for the sheer pleasure that a well written printed book can give in so many ways.
