The wild swans at Coole : manuscript materials by W. B Yeats( Book )
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 14 libraries worldwide
"Most of the poems collected in The Wild Swans at Coole were written between 1915 and 1918, a critical period in Yeats's adult life. First published in 1917 in a volume including twenty-three poems and a play, The Wild Swans at Coole was reissued in 1919 without the play and with seventeen additional poems. The Cornell Yeats edition includes transcriptions of manuscript materials for the poems in both collections, accompanied by a generous number of facsimiles." "The years during which Yeats composed The Wild Swans at Coole witnessed the painful drama of his successive proposals of marriage, first to Maud Gonne and then to her daughter Iseult. Rejected by both, he abruptly married Georgie Hyde-Lees. Yeats's new wife developed the practice of "automatic writing," thereby introducing him to a liberating world of mystical communication which he would further explore in A Vision."--Jacket

The countess Cathleen : manuscript materials by W. B Yeats( Book )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 12 libraries worldwide
"Originally published in 1892, The Countess Cathleen aroused fierce controversy when it was first performed, in a radically revised version, in 1899. The play was frequently revived and almost as often revised, becoming at various points in Yeats's career a decisive indicator of his relations with his literary and theatrical public, of his changing conception of dramatic form, and of the status of his pursuit of Maud Gonne, for whom the play was written. This volume in the Cornell Yeats reproduces the complete set of extant manuscripts preceding the play's first publication and reassembles the extensive manuscript, proof, and authorial copy now distributed in archives in Ireland, England, and the United States to present a crucial body of evidence of Yeats's work and thought in drama and theater over the course of three decades." "In addition to its authoritative introductory essay on the genesis of Yeats's most revised work, the book provides a comprehensive descriptive census and chronology of the manuscripts, a bibliographic account of the editions and printings in Yeats's lifetime, a table of the major revisions by act and scene, and appendixes giving the English and French sources of the play and the notes with the playwright's own corrections."--BOOK JACKET

Sophocles' Oedipus at Colonus : manuscript materials by Sophocles( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 10 libraries worldwide
"Working from Victorian translations into English and French by classicists R. C. Jebb and Paul Masqueray, Yeats completed Oedipus the King in the fall of 1926 and Oedipus at Colonus a year later. Yeats gave the second play, like the first, directly to the Abbey players, prompting him to revise and hone his texts through many versions to achieve his stated goal of putting the play "into simple speakable prose" that he hoped would be his "contribution to the Abbey Repertory." The play had a successful run in September of 1927 but was not published until 1934." "The edition presents photographs and transcriptions of three revised typescripts that Yeats prepared and extensively revised over a period of eight-and-a-half months and a reading text based on the first publication of the play, which is presented with an apparatus of collations from the many proofs for three different intended publications. Included also are photographs and transcriptions of the verse choruses, except for the two appearing in The Tower (1928), also in this series; an appendix of other typescripts and proofs that invite detailed treatment; and a brief account of the music written for the play by Lennox Robinson, who was also its first director. The texts are prefaced by a census of manuscripts, an introduction discussing Yeats's development of the play,and a chronology of composition."--BOOK JACKET

The king of the great clock tower ; and A full moon in March : manuscript materials by W. B Yeats( Book )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 9 libraries worldwide
""It takes years to get my plays right." So Yeats informed Margot Ruddock on October 11,1934, from Rome, where he had begun to redraft The King of the Great Clock Tower to give her a role to act. In June of that year Yeats had begun to rewrite his first prose version of the play before it had even been staged (it was performed most successfully at the Abbey Theatre from July 30 that summer). Two versions of The King of the Great Clock Tower (one in prose and one in verse) and a new play, A Full Moon in March, derived from the first, were to emerge from a period of gestation that had started early in November 1933. The composition of each play was fueled by Yeats's intense feeling for a woman. Both were performers: Ninette de Valois elected only to dance on stage and not to speak; Margot Ruddock was an actress possessed of a rich contralto voice who preferred not to dance (despite Yeats's most enduring description of her as his "sweet dancer"). Yeats devised strategies for each of his dance plays to meet these prescriptions. While admiration for de Valois's artistry helped to shape the first play, the second for Ruddock was the product of a deepening personal infatuation. The structure and content of the two plays and the differences between them reflect the wholly different emotions that stimulated their creation." "This volume of the Cornell Yeats contains manuscript materials for both the prose and verse renditions of The King of the Great Clock Tower and all of the drafts that resulted in A Full Moon in March. It also includes drafts of Yeats's prefaces and program notes for the plays, as well as staging information and cast photographs of the production of The King of the Great Clock Tower at the Abbey."--BOOK JACKET
