T.S. Eliot said of Yeats that he was "one of those whose history is the history of our time." Frank Tuohy gives us a revealing portrait of Yeats, his family, his friends, his many-sided activities as a poet, playwright, politician, and even statesman. We learn of his development as a writer from his early days in Dublin and London, and the influence upon him of the Pre-Raphaelite movement; of William Morris, Ruskin, Pater; of Wilde, Beardsley, and Dowden; the Irish dramatists Shaw, Synge, and O'Casey; the groups that gathered around Wyndham Lewis, James Joyce, and Pound; Oxford in the 1920's, and the Auden generation thereafter. And influence would be feeble a word for his relations with some of the most remarkable women of his time, starting with Maude Gonne.
