    Read this book on Questia. In Running to Paradise, M.L. Rosenthal, hailed by the Times Literary Supplement as "one of the most important critics of twentieth-century poetry," leads us through the lyric poetry and poetic drama of our century's greatest poet in English. The Ireland of Yeats's dreams was an enchanted isle of generous aristocrats and grateful peasants. That Yeats was a great poet is beyond question. His genius for making universal significance out of the local, personal, even trite events and feelings is unlike any other.
