The Lake Isle of Innisfree, by WB Yeats: Poem and Video

The Lake Isle of Innisfree, one of Yeats’ most antholgized poems,  is here presented in two separate readings. The first is a rare version of Yeats reciting his own poem in his characteristic incantatory voice, almost singing the lines; the second is by Tom O’Bedlam, one of the most accomplished poetry readers on the internet.

  1. Thank you Lasha! A beautiful poem and seeing the video reminds me of Ireland of the past!

  2. While it has a poetic title, I think the poem, itself, leaves a lot to be desired… Pretty cool, though, to hear Yeats, himself, recite it! 🙂
