About the Author:

The late Richard J. Finneran was general editor, with George Mills Harper, of The Collected Works of W. B. Yeats for many years; series editor of The Poems in the Cornell Yeats; and editor of Yeats: An Annual of Critical and Textual Studies, among other works. He held the Hodges Chair of Excellence at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville; was a past president of the South Atlantic Modern Language Association; and served as executive director of the Society for Textual Scholarship.

William Butler Yeats is generally considered to be Ireland’s greatest poet, living or dead, and one of the most important literary figures of the twentieth century. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1923.

Review:

'...will suit courses which deal with Yeats's work as a whole. In this sense, as well, Finneran's volume is a superior teaching tool to Pethica's...The prefactory matter is short, but well written, and makes a strong case for having available in one volume both the creative and critical output which we know are so inter-referential that to ignore or to minimise the importance of the latter is to miss valuable insight into the former. This is a fine effort, and a boon to intructors. Finneran has chosen wisely and well, and both students and instructors will be grateful that such a volume is now available to us all.' - Christina Hunt, The Catholic University of America, Washington, DC, Irish Studies Review

'Richard Finneran's The Yeats Rader (revised edition) is a must.' - William Baker, Professor, Department of English/University Libraries, Northern Illinois University, USA
