Overview

*Illustrated with pictures
*Includes Table of Contents

One of the most famous poets of the 20th century, William Butler Yeats (1865-1939) was so popular and renowned during his time that he was the leader of what came to be known as the Irish Literary Revival, on the strength of his short stories and vivid poetry. Eventually it would lead to his winning a Nobel Prize in 1923. It’s no surprise that Ireland loved its home grown son; the Nobel Prize Committee credited him for “inspired poetry, which in a highly artistic form gives expression to the spirit of a whole nation.”

Before Yeats won awards, his interest in spirituality and folklore drove him to write at length about Irish mythology and the occult before the turn of the 20th century. In many ways, it was Yeats who popularized the characters of Celtic mythology and medieval Irish folklore for contemporaneous audiences.
The Celtic Twilight is one of his best-known collections of prose. He professes the firm belief in the realitiy of Fairies, who have considerable impact on his life, and the lives of all the Irish. On its own, this collection is a great overview of Celtic Fairy folklore.

This edition of The Celtic Twilight is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and pictures of Yeats, his life and work, and characters from Celtic mythology and Irish folklore.

    Outstanding

    Though sadly neglected, this book is of great importance to the study of folklore. It is brilliantly told by one of the greatest poets. He compiled it from the tales of many people in Ireland and forged it into a memorable, haunting, and important book. Read it!!
