From the PublisherEavan Boland
This is a splendid and essential piece of editing and a poignant addition to Yeats scholarship.
This is completely entrancing material, showing Yeats as a very young man already enthralled by "the fascination of what's difficult" in art. George Bornstein edits lucidly and thoroughly, so that the book will appeal not only to Yeats specialists but to anyone with an interest in the choices and chances that contribute to poetic composition, and ultimately to the construction of a poetic identity.
These poems show that the early Yeats had a long way to go before he would come into his force. But they are also fascinating for their incipient themes and attitudes, and all scholars and devotees of Yeats must be grateful to George Bornstein for making them available.
