A HANDSOME COLLECTION OF YEAT'S POETRY, PILLARS OF MODERN IRISH LITERATURE. Yeats was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, "for his always inspired poetry, which in a highly artistic form gives expression to the spirit of a whole nation." Yeats is also generally considered one of the twentieth century's key poets of the English language and one of the greatest masters of the traditional poetic form. At the same time, Yeats' is credited with creating poetry that became a major stepping stone into the modernist forms.
