W.B. Yeats : a new biography by A. Norman Jeffares( Book )

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

Ireland's love poems : wonder and a wild desire by A. Norman Jeffares( Book )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 601 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All poets share a common task: to define, to memorialize, and never to exhaust the subject of love. Ireland's Love Poems highlights one country's extraordinary poetic tradition, in both the English and Irish languages, by male and female poets, both ancient and modern. Emotions of every kind are embodied in this celebration of love's pleasures and pains, in forms ranging from complex ancient Irish ballads to forthright contemporary feminist verse. These poems consider romance in all its stages: from the thrills of young love to the commitments of marriage, from grief to amorous rebirth, from affection to idolatry. The result is a cumulative portrait of love that mirrors Irish history in its complexity
