An anthology of the final works of great poets. It curates the last poems of one hundred influential poets. Each of these poems, sometimes the literal end and other times the imagined conclusion to a poetic career, offer a lens through which to contemplate the enduring nature of art and the inevitability of death.
W B Yeats' life spanned the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century, and his poetry reflects all the turmoil, fervour, traditions and revolutions of that period. This collection shows the impact of a great poet whose startling relevance to our own times grows more and more evident.
