"This book contains allthe writer cares to preserve out of his previous volumes of verse. He has revised, and to large extent re-written 'The Wanderings of Usheen' and the lyrics and ballads from the same volume,a nd expanded and, he hopes, strengthened 'The Countess Cathleen'. He has, however, been compelled to leave unchanged many lines he would gladly have re-written, because his present skill is not great enough to separate them from thoughts and expresions which seem to him worth preserving." - from Yeats's preface.
