"One of the most influential figures of the twentieth century, William Butler Yeats (1865-1939) is among the greatest poets to have written in the English language. He was a multi-talented writer, fascinated by the occult, an important dramatist, critic and autobiographer, with a career extending over more than fifty years." "Professor Jeffares investigates the relationship between Yeats's life and his work. He considers the crucial moments as well as the famous relationships that changed Yeats's destiny. A founder of the Abbey Theatre, Dublin, Yeats was also a Senator of the Irish Free State. His life has provided a remarkably rich and varied canvas for this timeless biography."--BOOK JACKET

Ireland's love poems : wonder and a wild desire by A. Norman Jeffares ( Book )
5 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The vast complexity of Ireland's history and culture - from the pre-Christian pagan period and the powerful bardic schools, through the tragic nineteenth century potato famine and the emergence of today's Irish nation - has always been intricately linked to and determined the nature of its poetry. Ireland has an extraordinary wealth of love poetry, both in the Irish and English languages. Emotions and experiences of every kind are expressed in this celebration of love's pleasures and pains, ranging from the complex bardic forms through to forthright contemporary feminist poetry." "In his selection A. Norman Jeffares illustrates this variety, choosing love poems from every period of Irish history. Some of the poets will be well known to readers: Swift, Wilde and Kennelly as well as the Nobel Prize winners, Yeats, Beckett and Heaney. Others will be lesser known but their contribution provides an opportunity to hear the authentic and intensely passionate voice of Irish love poems across the ages."--BOOK JACKET
