Yeats: The Man And The Masks

 
9781258172961: Yeats: The Man And The Masks

The definitive biography of William Butler Yeats

The most influential poet of his age, Yeats eluded the grasp of many who sought to explain him. In this classic critical examination of the poet, Richard Ellmann strips away the masks of his subject: occultist, senator of the Irish Free State, libidinous old man, and Nobel Prize winner.

From the Back Cover:

Yeat's life was one of the most complex of all the poets' in its outer and inner events. Mystical concerns - involvement with spiritualism, construction of a transcendental world system in A Vision - fitted among and around an unusually active involvement in public affairs, as a founder of the Abbey Theatre and as a senator of the new Irish Free State.

About the Author:

Richard Ellmann was Goldsmiths Professor at Oxford University and Woodruff Professor at Emory University. He achieved world fame for his biography of Joyce and wrote many scholarly and critical works, including two on Yeats.

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.
