Becoming George : the life of Mrs. W.B. Yeats by Ann Saddlemyer( Book )

15 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 1,052 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'I, the poet William Yeats ... Restored this tower for my wife George' claims the lovely six-line poem in which Yeats dedicates the renovation of Thoor Ballylee. But the poem's truth conceals another, and different truth - that they worked together at the restoration, and it was largely her vision and hands that created a dwelling from the former ruins. Just how symbolic this is, of the close but largely hidden collaboration between them, is revealed by this deeply-researched life of George Yeats - the first full-scale biography of a woman of remarkable gifts and generous self concealment." "For the first time, this woman is allowed to take centre stage. Drawing on memoirs and a wealth of unknown and unpublished sources, this biography by the distinguished scholar Ann Saddlemyer reveals someone much more significant than just 'Mrs. W.B. Yeats' - a personality at once visionary and practical, and an important figure in twentieth-century literary history."--Jacket

Theatre business : the correspondence of the first Abbey Theatre directors : William Butler Yeats, Lady Gregory, and J.M. Synge by William Butler Yeats( Book )

20 editions published between 1980 and 1982 in 3 languages and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this volume Dr. Saddlemyer has created, by selecting from the correspondence of the first directors, W.B.Yeats, Lady Gregory and J.M.Synge, and drawing on material by Miss Horniman and others, a fascinating book that shows the foundation and evolution of the Abbey through the first five years of its existence, as seen from the inside by the protagonists. It describes the internal management problems, including the controversies that led to the first departure of players over nationalist principles, and the troubles which eventually brought about the resignation of Frank and Willie Fay, as well as the daily difficulties of programming, casting, production and finance, and the excitement of a pioneering theatrical enterprise

In Wicklow, West Kerry, and Connemara by J. M Synge( Book )

6 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is an overlooked masterpiece by one of Ireland's best-loved writers. In it Synge captured the idiosyncracies of everyday speech better, perhaps, than any other Irish writer, while his eye caught the details of a way of life that has long since disappeared

The tower (1928) : manuscript materials by William Butler Yeats( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"W. B. Yeats's The Tower, first published in 1928 and later revised a number of times, arrived in its final form after many years of dedicated labor. Yeats here is concerned with the "rooting of mythology in the earth," binding almost every poem to the image of Thoor Ballylee, the building in the west of Ireland that he saw as a permanent symbol of his work. Still considered one of the seminal volumes of modern poetry, its themes are both intensely personal and determinedly universal: old age and its attendant problems, the relationship between Nature and Art, the natural and the supernatural or spiritual, the self and the world. In her unsigned review of the collection, Virginia Woolf was to declare, "Mr Yeats has never written more exactly and more passionately."" "Yet the poet was never satisfied, and in this volume we can trace the alterations, some subtle and others startling, of the hard-earned technique resulting in such major works as "Sailing to Byzantium," "Among School Children," "Leda and the Swan," and "Meditations in Time of Civil War." Materials include transcriptions and photographs of the earliest recoverable drafts and selected transcriptions from the most interesting manuscripts and annotated typescripts. Collations of closely related materials, including printed readings preceding the 1928 volume, are attached to transcriptions of the texts to which they lead or from which they stem. Appendixes reveal the different ordering of titles in The Tower that Yeats provided both before and after 1928"--Jacket
