An audiocassette titled The Poetry of William Butler Yeats, which features eighty-five of Yeats's best known verses, including "Leda and the Swan," was released in 1996 by Dove Books Audio.

The myth of Leda and the Swan has been the subject of numerous works of art, including sculptures and other decorative works from ancient times: Correggio's painting "Leda with the Swan" (1531-1532); Tintoretto's painting "Leda and the Swan" (1570-1575); Van Dongen's watercolor "Leda and the Swan" (1922); and Salvador Dali's painting "Leda atomica" (1949).
