The Countess Kathleen and Various Legends and Lyrics (1892) is the second poetry collection of W. B. Yeats.

It includes the play The Countess Kathleen and group of shorter lyrics that Yeats would later collect under the title of The Rose in his Collected Poems.

This volume includes several of Yeats' most popular poems, including "The Lake Isle of Innisfree", "A Faery Song", "When You are Old", and "Who Goes with Fergus". (The last is sung by Stephen Dedalus to his mother as she lies dying in James Joyce's Ulysses.)

Many of these poems also reflect Yeats' new-discovered interest in alchemy and esotericism.
