About this title

Synopsis:

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.

Review:

"Readers interested in the Ireland that produced almost simutaneously Syne and Shaw, Oscar Wilde, James Joyce and Sean O'Casey, as well as Yeats himself, will find a great deal here to entertain and enlighten them." (The Economist)

"Richly illustrated and beautifully produced...an excellent, authoritative study, written with descrimination and style...capturing the passion, gaiety and power of its subject." (Times Literary Supplement)
