Diarmuid and Grania : manuscript materials by W. B Yeats( Book )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"George Moore involved W.B. Yeats personally in the revision of a novel of Moore's that contained a character based on Yeats; this involvement led to the pair's collaboration in writing a play based on Diarmuid and Grania, one of the best-known tragic tales of Celtic mythology. At the late stages of composition, the authors decided to add songs, and Edward Elgar provided the music. The play opened at the Gaiety Theatre in Dublin on October 21, 1901. Although the collaboration had been difficult - Yeats and Moore disagreed frequently, mainly about style - the production was well received. Controversy arose, however, because English actors played these most Irish of characters. After the play was produced, Yeats, whose commitment had occasionally seemed to waver, defended it against all criticism." "The manuscript materials included in the Cornell Yeats edition of Diarmuid and Grania provide a full record of the disputes and revisions that culminated in the final draft."--BOOK JACKET

Coleridge's experimental poetics by J. C. C Mays( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Coleridge has been perceived as the youthful author of a few brilliant poems and the rest of his career as a downward spiral of unfinished verses, philosophical meanderings, and opium addiction. While the perception contains just enough truth to render it indestructible, it is neither the whole truth nor the only one. The present study argues that the poetry is a continuous process of experimentation, especially with metre, rhythm and sound patterns. It provides a new perspective on both familiar and unfamiliar poems, and of the relation between Coleridge's poetry and philosophical thinking, and suggests connections with several modern writers."--Publisher's website
Coleridge's Ancient mariner by J. C. C Mays( Book )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and German and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first book-length study to read the 'ancient mariner' as 'poetry', in Coleridge's own particular sense of the word. Coleridge's complicated relationship with the 'mariner' as an experimental poem lies in its origin as a joint project with Wordsworth. J.C.C. Mays traces the changes in the several versions published in Coleridge's lifetime and shows how Wordsworth's troubled reactions to the poem influenced its subsequent interpretation."--Page [4] of cover
