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 Annotated with a wealth of previously unpublished material and including a biographical register to the main figures who appear in the letters, this definitive collection is one all scholars of Yeats and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

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"What a vibrant, complex, forceful, self-questioning personality shines through these letters....Kelly shows epic scholarly skills. His notes are copious and informative, and he adds considerably to our understanding of Yeats. He has taken on the task of editing the letters of one of the greatest poets and worst spellers of our times, and he has done a magnificent job....Yeats...is here honored by the sort of scrupulous attention he himself gave to all poetry and people he considered worthwhile."—The New York Times Book Review.

"The editors have performed an amazing feat...and all students of literature in English will be indebted to them."—Choice

"Compelling, entertaining, stamped with Yeats's creative power; dip into it almost anywhere, and you are likley to find yourself completely absorbed."—The New York Times

"What with its beautiful notes and photographs, the completed project will enable us to see a Yeats heretofore known only to intimates and biographers."—Virginia Quarterly Review

"The project, when completed, will be one of the most exemplary scholarly achievements of the century."—Journal of Modern Literature
