    Interesting, kind of. There is quite a bit of overlap between the essays. Critics seem particularly fond of quoting Yeats's father saying that his son is a poet not a philosopher. (I think I got the gist of that wrong, which is kind of pathetic and hilarious considering how many times I read it) But there is some good historical and critical context for Yeats's work. I particularly liked the one about Yeats and gender (though I though it could have been more in-depth).
