Studying Yeats? Analysis links? (Some inside) (1 Viewer)

It appears that hardly anybody is studying Yeats, however for those who are, I've decided to construct a list of links to interpretations/readings/analysis' for the poems being studied (I'm quite sure the required poems are the same) I.e:
When you are old, Easter 1916, The Wild Swans at Coole, Sailing to Byzantium, Byzantium and The Second Coming.

Here are a few I have:

Sailing to Byzantium:

Easter 1916:

When You are Old:

The Wild Swans at Coole
http://www.helium.com/items/1087775-google-yahoo-poetry-analysis-synopsis-summary-the-wild-swans-at-coole-william-butler-yeats


Sparknotes for most of them:
http://www.sparknotes.com/poetry/yeats/

Then there's obviously Wikipedia- most of the poems are on there with readings.

Edit: O.k. since this thread was deemed important (attached to the top of the thread) I thought I might as well add more so I have. I'll continue to add to the list when I come accross any more.
If anybody has any links interpretations of any of the listed poems please post them and I'll add them to the list. Also if any links don't work or there's any issues with any please post them as well.

Just go to sparknotes.com or type the poems name in google. sparknotes is the best site for a quick analysis of the poems and their meters and stuff. What i really need is a scholars critique of his poetry. then im set.
