The secret rose : stories by W. B Yeats( Book )

68 editions published between 1897 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 1,041 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unsigned binding design by Althea Gyles in gold on smooth dark blue cloth. Includes frontispiece and 6 b/w illustrations after John Butler Yeats (the author's father). A collection of 17 short stories blending Irish with Rosicrucian characters and themes. Gyles' masterpiece shows influences of both the Pre-Raphaelite and Symbolist movements. The front cover design is the Tree of Life, with its roots entwined in the skeleton of a dead knight and its crown displaying three roses (echoing the central rose representing a 'rosy cross' at the tree's 'heart'), The tree is composed of Celtic interlace that culminates in an image of kissing lovers. The spine design is that of Lug's spear (symbol of desire) enwreathed with poppies and immersed in a bowl of sleeping potion. The design on the rear cover is of the alchemical rose, a rose-cross contained in a diamond-like configuration of pointed spears and a circle (a 'squared circle'). Second binding issue, on smooth rather than ribbed cloth with publisher "A.H. Bullen" at the base of the spine. There were thought to be approximately 1000 copies of this issue. Althea Gyles (1868-1949) was a gifted artist, designer and poet who studied at the Slade School of Fine Art in London. She met W. B. Yeats in 1891, and became, with Yeats, an adherent of the Order of the Golden Dawn, an organization devoted to the study and practice of the occult, metaphysics, and paranormal activities. Gyles' works in Symbolism derive from the cabalistic iconography of the Golden Dawn's second order of Rosae Rubeae et Aureae Crucis (the Ruby Rose and Cross of Gold). Her ability to use abstract means to express the truth as she saw it, makes her work one of the vanguards of Modernism. Gyles is best known for her binding designs for Yeats including The Secret Rose (1897), Poems (1899) and The Wind Among the Reeds (1899). -- Austin Abbey Rare Books

W.B. Yeats by W. B Yeats( Book )

36 editions published between 1925 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All things can tempt me from this craft of verse: One time it was a woman's face, or worse- The seeming needs of my fool-driven land; Now nothing but comes readier to the hand Than this accustomed toil. --From All Things Can Tempt Me Nobel Prize winner W.B. Yeats laid the foundations for an Irish literary revival, drawing inspiration from his country's folklore, the occult, and Celtic philosophy. A writer of both poems and plays, he helped found Dublin's famed Abbey Theatre. The poems here provide an example of his life's work and artistry, beginning with verses such as "The Stolen Child" from his debut collection Crossways (written when he was 24) through "Why Should Not Old Men Be Mad?" from On the Boiler, published a year prior to his death

W.B. Yeats : a life by R. F Foster( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the first authorized biography of W.B. Yeats for over fifty years, Roy Foster brings new light to one of the most complex and fascinating lives of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. Working from a great archive of personal and contemporary material, he dramatically alters traditional perceptions to illuminate the poet's family history, relationships, politics and art. The search for supernatural wisdom forms a constant thread, traced through Yeats' occult notebooks and closely related to the insecurities of his personal life. The Apprentice Mage charts the growth of a poet's mind and of an astonishing personality, both of which were instrumental in the formation of a new and radicalized Irish nationalist identity
W.B. Yeats : a new biography by A. Norman Jeffares( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Half a century ago, Norman Jeffares wrote the definitive biography of W.B. Yeats, Ireland's preeminent poet. That book appeared just 10 years after Yeats's death, & much new material has come to light since. Drawing on freshly uncovered correspondence, manuscripts, contemporary memoirs, plus conversations with many of Yeat's friends and relations, this book produces a striking new portrait of the poet. It charts the many stages of Yeats' extraordinary career and tells the story of his turbulent personal life. This judicious and lively narrative, illustrated with photographs, paintings and drawings, provides the most complete picture we have yet of one of the century's most commanding and influential writers. -- Publisher description
