I did my history thesis on W.B. Yeats and the Literary Revival. When I first heard this recording- after years of reading his work and a full year of studying all of his writings- it brought tears to my eyes to hear his voice for the first time. I still remember that moment. I wrote a poem about it at the time- perhaps I'll post it sometime.
