Below are three of my favorite readings of Yeats’s poetry.


The first is from Bob Geldof’s flawed but fabulous program for RTE TV, Fanatic Heart.

Liam Neeson Reads “Easter 1916”


The second reading is from the film adaptation of every book lover’s must-read book, 84 Charing Cross Road. Amazingly, they managed to turn it into a must-see film, too, with the fabulous Anne Bancroft and Anthony Hopkins.

Anthony Hopkins Reads “He Wishes For The Cloths of Heaven”

 


And the last reading is a film poem, commissioned for the Yeats2015 anniversary celebrations by the wonderful actor, producer, rainmaker and all-round lovely, Shevaun Wilder.

Michael Gambon reads “The Song of Wandering Aengus”
