Like the previous volume of The Collected Letters this book presents Yeats's letters with his characteristic misspellings and odd punctuation, giving the full flavor of his idiosyncrasies as a correspondent. Fascinating and highly revealing of the poet, the letters show his political fervor and poetic sensibility, and convey his passion as friend, adversary, critic, and countryman. Annotated with a wealth of previously unpublished material and including a biographical register to the main figures who appear in the letters, this definitive collection is one all scholars of Yeats and lovers of poetry will want to grace their shelves.

John Kelly edited Volume I of Yeats Collected Letters. He lives in Oxford. Ronald Schuchard is Professor of English at Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia, where he also lives. He was visiting fellow to Wolfson College, Oxford in 1986/7, and has written many articles for the Yeats Annual, and other literary journals.Review:
"What a vibrant, complex, forceful, self-questioning personality shines through these letters....Kelly shows epic scholarly skills. His notes are copious and informative, and he adds considerably to our understanding of Yeats. He has taken on the task of editing the letters of one of the greatest poets and worst spellers of our times, and he has done a magnificent job....Yeats...is here honored by the sort of scrupulous attention he himself gave to all poetry and people he considered worthwhile."--The New York Times Book Review.
