Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"It is striking in this volume, and elsewhere, how carefully Yeats dated the manuscripts of his poems, apparently at the point where he thought them finished. There is a full body of drafts for both 'The Dreaming of the Bones' and 'Calvary' that allows us to see the steady growth of the plays from conception to completion, and then to follow changes made to Dreaming during and following its one Abbey production in 1931. Calvary was never produced in Yeat's lifetime. This volume of manuscripts, with the fine editorial and explicatory work of David Clark, helps to reduce the effort and increased the appreciation."—Nicholas Grene, Trinity College
