BTW the next project I have in mind will be a popular science (physics) book on Legamus (it's a bit too recent for LV) called The Mysterious Universe. Will post it shortly.

Peter, I'm thrilled! If you would like for me to DPL, I would be happy to do so. Believe it or not, I had been thinking of trying to sweet talk you into recording Yeats's The Tower for Legamus (on PGA, if you want to have a look...). I've toyed with recording it myself, but you're a better reader than I am. This is already getting a bit pushy, so I'll shut up, and I'll PL Byron soon.

Well, Yeats is one of my top two favourite poets (Eliot is #1) so I would love to read The Tower. Yeats is OK for LV though isn't he? I did the Wild Swans at Coole a couple of years ago for LV.
My phobia with Yeats is the Irish proper names but if you can assist with that it would be great!

43.46-43.47, CLXXXVI
If such there were [heard were there]




As for Yeats, yes, most of his work is LV-able. His later work was published too late and has to go to Legamus. Earlier this year a virus knocked me off course for a few weeks and I idly spent a bit of time fantasising about what I might record later. From memory, there isn't much Yeats on PGC, but PGA has The Tower - twenty-ish sections or thereabouts. There is also a selected poems edition from the 1930s or 1940s on Adelaide. Last month I uploaded a couple from that to the multilingual short works collection and I have a couple more queueing up. I didn't chase up other possibilities at the time, so that's about the extent of my post-1922 Yeats knowledge.

Regarding the Irish names, please don't exaggerate my erudition! I'm willing to help if I can, but I had to look up a few place names when I did some McKittrick Ros.
