The Lake Isle of Innisfree
WB Yeats
• He remembers Inisfree as a perfect little island 
that would supply all his needs. His memory 
tricks him into thinking it had a beautiful summer 
climate all year round.
• Stanza 1: Yeats imagines building a tiny hut on 
the little island of Inisfree. He dreams of living on 
beans and honey which he will cultivate himself. 
Obviously he is unrealistic. He also wants to get 
away from people: ‘live alone’.

• Stanza 3: 
• In the third stanza the thought and action 
develops. Yeats states his decision to leave the 
‘pavements grey’ of London. He is obsessed 
with or crazed by the sound of lake water and 
has to leave the city. Finally he admits that he 
has a deep need to live in a beautiful place 
encircled by the sound of water:
‘I hear it in the deep heart's core’.
