W B Yeats and Paul Celan

Today’s new poets are the Irishman W B Yeats and the German language Romanian poet Paul Celan. The poem by Yeats is his prophetic work of 1919, The Second Coming, with a link to a YouTube reading by the late Ted Hughes. From Celan’s poet page there is a link to his own recording of his great Holocaust poem, Todesfüge, with an English translation.
