The king of the great clock tower ; and A full moon in March : manuscript materials by W. B Yeats ( Book )
7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
""It takes years to get my plays right." So Yeats informed Margot Ruddock on October 11,1934, from Rome, where he had begun to redraft The King of the Great Clock Tower to give her a role to act. In June of that year Yeats had begun to rewrite his first prose version of the play before it had even been staged (it was performed most successfully at the Abbey Theatre from July 30 that summer). Two versions of The King of the Great Clock Tower (one in prose and one in verse) and a new play, A Full Moon in March, derived from the first, were to emerge from a period of gestation that had started early in November 1933. The composition of each play was fueled by Yeats's intense feeling for a woman. Both were performers: Ninette de Valois elected only to dance on stage and not to speak; Margot Ruddock was an actress possessed of a rich contralto voice who preferred not to dance (despite Yeats's most enduring description of her as his "sweet dancer"). Yeats devised strategies for each of his dance plays to meet these prescriptions. While admiration for de Valois's artistry helped to shape the first play, the second for Ruddock was the product of a deepening personal infatuation. The structure and content of the two plays and the differences between them reflect the wholly different emotions that stimulated their creation." "This volume of the Cornell Yeats contains manuscript materials for both the prose and verse renditions of The King of the Great Clock Tower and all of the drafts that resulted in A Full Moon in March. It also includes drafts of Yeats's prefaces and program notes for the plays, as well as staging information and cast photographs of the production of The King of the Great Clock Tower at the Abbey."--BOOK JACKET
The lake by George Moore ( Book )
8 editions published between 1980 and 2002 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Father Gogarty's changing perceptions of the landscape he encounters during his frequent walks around a lake in a remote area of Ireland lead him to question some fundamental principles of the Catholic Church and to come to a more instinctive relationship with God. The afterword discusses Moore's literary style and the influence of Zola, Dujardin, and his own later writing which led to two revisions of The Lake
Selected plays by W. B Yeats ( Book )
8 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The simple, intimate staging of Yeats's late plays counterpointed by their formal ritual in verse, dance, music and masks creates dramas of extraordinary intensity. Repudiating naturalism, Yeats remains with Lorca, Cocteau and Pirandello among the profound innovators of the European theatre." "Richard Allen Cave provides a full introduction and a commentary on each play. His selection envisages the plays in performance, and groups them chronologically in order of initial composition to enable us to appreciate Yeats's remarkable development as a dramatist."--BOOK JACKET

Collaborations : Ninette de Valois and William Butler Yeats by Richard Allen Cave ( Book )
4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"W.B. Yeats's invitation to Ninette de Valois to come to Dublin and help him stage his plays for dancers and to found a School of Ballet at the Abbey Theatre have been known facts for many years, not least from de Valois' own autobiographies. 'Collaborations' is the first detailed study of the creative relationship of poet and dancer that resulted, which lasted from 1927 to 1934"--P. [4] of cover
Ninette de Valois : adventurous traditionalist by Richard Allen Cave ( Book )
4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Ninette de Valois was gifted with myriad talents. It has required a wealth of writers, teachers, performers, colleagues, one-tme students and collaborators to come together ot engage with and celebrate the complexity of this remarkable woman. The titles of the sections into which the volume has been divided (Biography, Teaching, Wordsmith, Company, Turkey, Choreography, Collaborations, Herself) merely intimate the strength of her inner resources and the diversity of her public achievements, her vision for a company and for the potentials of dance as an art-form. Determing those strengths and that diversity is the objective of 'Ninette de Valois: Adventurous Traditionalist'. Writing alone cannot hope fully to capture the vitality of theatrical performance or the rigours of the training and rehearsal schedules that underpin its virtuosity and so the volume is accompanied by many previously unpublished photographs and a DVD, offering four hours of filmed material of archival value. This study offers a substantial resource to assist future exploration of de Valois' life and work. The essays pursue divergent approaches and encompass contrasting viewpoints; but it is without question that de Valois' unparalleled success derived from her unshaken faith that ballet in its training methods and its repertoire must be both fearlessly adventurous and confidently traditionalist"--Publisher's description, back cover
