Yeats' Ireland : an illustrated anthology by Benedict Kiely( Book )
9 editions published between 1989 and 1994 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Celebrates the spirit of the country and its people in the work of one of Ireland's greatest writers. Benedict Kiely, himself one of Ireland's beloved authors (and friend of the Yeats family), has selected and linked this anthology from both the poetry and prose of Yeats. To his selection Kiely adds his own insight, wit and perception. Selections from the great edifice of the writer's prose, Mythologies, evoke the customs and beliefs of the Ireland of the day, and in extracts from Autobiographies, Yeats recalls reveries from his childhood and the great figures who peopled and shaped his life. The anthology is sensitively illustrated with contemporary paintings and graphic art, together with photography of the people and places of Yeats' Ireland: from the countryside of Sligo, where Yeats spent much of his childhood, to Dublin; from Galway races to the majestic Ben Bulben. Authorized by the Estate of W.B. Yeats, this is the perfect interpretation of Yeats' life and work against the setting of the Ireland of his time.--From publisher description
