One of the world's leading Yeats scholars completes his definitive history, begun with the highly acclaimed Prodigal Father, in Family Secrets, a biography of William Butler Yeats, his younger brother Jack, and sisters Susan Mary (Lily) and Elizabeth Corbet (Lollie). This long-awaited sequel follows in the earlier book's tradition of the "right book written by exactly the right man" (Hugh Kenner). Never before has the public been privy to the story of these lives woven in such intimate detail. Murphy takes us into some of the family's darkest "secrets:" the strains of emotional instability among the Pollexfen aunts and uncles; interest in mysticism and the occult (about which Yeats wrote considerably); the father's long platonic relationship with Miss Rosa Butt; the tensions between Lily and Lollie (the "weird sisters"), and Lollie's difficult, even paranoid personality
