Overview

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 Annotated with a wealth of previously unpublished material and including a biographical register to the main figures who appear in the letters, this definitive collection is one all scholars of Yeats and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.
