Abstract:

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
