Yeats and afterwords by Marjorie Elizabeth Howes( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Yeats and Afterwords, contributors articulate W.B. Yeats's powerful, multilayered sense of belatedness as part of his complex literary method. They explore how Yeats deliberately positioned himself at various historical endpoints-of Romanticism, of the Irish colonial experience, of the Ascendancy, of civilization itself-and, in doing so, created a distinctively modernist poetics of iteration capable of registering the experience of finality and loss. While the crafting of such a poetics remained a constant throughout Yeats's career, the particular shape it took varied over time, depending on which lost object Yeats was contemplating. By tracking these vicissitudes, the volume offers new ways of thinking about the overarching trajectory of Yeats's poetic engagements. Yeats and Afterwords proceeds in three stages, involving past-pastness, present-pastness, and future-pastness
