Under the moon : the unpublished early poetry by W. B Yeats( Book )
9 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in English and held by 1,029 libraries worldwide
While working on a facsimile edition and transcription of W.B. Yeats's surviving early manuscripts, renowned Yeats scholar George Bornstein made a thrilling literary discovery: thirty-eight unpublished poems written between the poet's late teens and late twenties. These works span the crucial years during which the poet "remade himself from the unknown and insecure young student Willie Yeats to the more public literary, cultural, and even political figure W.B. Yeats whom we know today." "Here is a poetry marked by a rich, exuberant, awkward, soaring sense of potential, bracingly youthful in its promise and its clumsiness, in its moments of startling beauty and irrepressible excess," says Brendan Kennelly. And the Yeats in these pages is already experimenting with those themes with which his readers will become intimate: his stake in Irish nationalism; his profound love for Maud Gonne; his intense fascination with the esoteric and the spiritual. With Bornstein's help, one can trace Yeats's process of self-discovery through constant revision and personal reassessment, as he develops from the innocent and derivative lyricist of the early 1880s to the passionate and original poet/philosopher of the 1890s. Reading-texts of over two dozen of these poems appear here for the first time, together with those previously available only in specialized literary journals or monographs. Bornstein has assembled all thirty-eight under the title Yeats had once planned to give his first volume of collected poems. Under the Moon is essential reading for anyone interested in modern poetry

Material modernism : the politics of the page by George Bornstein( Book )
14 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and held by 427 libraries worldwide
"Material Modernism draws on editorial theory, cultural studies, and the history of the book to argue for a freshly historicized reading of modernism. Instead of taking texts as consisting of disembodied words, Bornstein considers their physical bodies as themselves semantically important. He argues that current constructions of literary modernism - like those that regard its achievements and attitudes as favouring the anti-historical over the historical, or product over process - are derived from the fixed, current, material forms of its texts. By studying modernism in its original sites of production and in the continually shifting physicality of its transmissions, an alternative construction emerges that emphasizes historical contingency, multiple versions, and the material features of the text itself. Bornstein recontextualizes works by a range of British, Irish, and American authors, including W.B. Yeats, Emma Lazarus, Gwendolyn Brooks, Ezra Pound, Marianne Moore, James Joyce, and writers of the Harlem Renaissance, among others."--Jacket

The colors of Zion : blacks, Jews, and Irish from 1845 to 1945 by George Bornstein( Book )
11 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 394 libraries worldwide
"A major reevaluation of relationships among Blacks, Jews, and Irish in the years between the Irish Famine and the end of World War II, [this book] argues that the cooperative efforts and sympathies among these three groups, each persecuted and subjugated in its own way, was much greater than often acknowledged today. For the Black, Jewish, and Irish writers, poets, musicians, and politicians at the center of this transatlantic study, a sense of shared wrongs inspired repeated outpourings of sympathy"--From publisher description

Early essays by W. B Yeats( Book )
5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 191 libraries worldwide
The Collected Works of W.B. Yeats, Volume IV: Early Essays is part of a fourteen-volume series under the general editorship of eminent Yeats scholars George Bornstein and George Mills Harper. These volumes include virtually all of the Nobel laureate's published work, in authoritative texts with extensive explanatory notes. Early Essays, edited by the internationally esteemed Yeats scholars George Bornstein and the late Richard J. Finneran, includes the contents of the two most important collections of Yeats's critical prose, Ideas of Good and Evil(1903) and The Cutting of an Agate(1912, 1919). Among the seminal essays are considerations of Blake, Shakespeare, Shelley, Spenser, and Synge, as well as an extended discussion of the Japanese Noh theatre. The first scholarly edition of these materials, Early Essays offers a corrected text and detailed annotation of all allusions. Several appendices gather materials from early printings which were later excluded, as well as illuminating black-and-white illustrations. Early Essays is an essential sourcebook for understanding Yeats's career as both writer and literary critic, and for the development of modern poetry and criticism. Here, Yeats works out many of his key ideas on poetry, politics, and the theater. He gives interpretations of writers critical to his development and presents a compelling vision of Ireland and the modern world during the last decade of the nineteenth century and first two decades of the twentieth. As T.S. Eliot remarked, Yeats "was one of those few whose history is the history of their own time, who are a part of the consciousness of an age which cannot be understood without them." This volume displays a crucial part of that history

The wanderings of Oisin, and other early poems to 1895 by W. B Yeats( Book )
4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 163 libraries worldwide
"This is the second of two volumes containing transcriptions and in many cases facsimiles of all surviving manuscripts of the poetry that Yeats had published by 1895, together with the later revisions of that poetry. In addition, the volume provides manuscript materials for thirty-eight newly discovered poems that Yeats is not known to have published: over two dozen of these appear here for the first time. The inclusion of so much previously unknown work will significantly alter interpretations of Yeats and of modern poetry more generally." "Whereas Volume 1 reproduced materials pertaining to the early dramatic verse The Island of Statues and Mosada, Volume II includes the other important poems in Yeats's first two books of verse. The Wanderings of Oisin and Other Poems and The Countess Kathleen and Various Legends and Lyrics, and in his 1895 collection, Poems. The nearly four hundred pages of previously unpublished manuscripts include working drafts of some of Yeats's best-known poems, such as "The Wanderings of Oisin," "The Lake Isle of Innisfree," "The Two Trees," and the Rose lyrics." "Most of the newly discovered poems date from the mid-1880s and reveal how Yeats experimented with style, stance, and subject during the crucial years at the beginning of his poetic career. Nine others written in the 1890s display a more polished technique, and many of these address the themes of Yeats's love for Maud Gonne and his occult interests. The editor's introduction to this volume will replace the familiar image of the young Yeats as dreamy and apolitical with a more accurate perception of him as a poet highly involved in the political and cultural issues of his day."--Jacket
