9780091739386: W.B.Yeats: A New Biography

Forty years ago Norman Jeffares published his first biography of W.B.Yeats, however since that time much new material has come to light, both written and illustrative. This volume is a major reassessment of the poet's work, marking the 50th anniversary of his death. Professor Jeffares has drawn upon material in the Yeats collection now in the possession of the poet's son and daughter, Michael and Anne Yeats, in the Jeanne R.Foster - William M.Murphy Collection in Schenectady, New York and in the National Library of Ireland. He has had access to unpublished correspondence, and has based some of his comments on conversations with the friends and relatives of Yeats. The author has also written "A History of Anglo-Irish Literature".

About the Author:

Norman Jeffares is an authority on Yeats and Anglo-Irish literary traditions. He was formerly Professor of English at the University of Stirling.

From Library Journal:

This "new biography" is a complete rewrite of Jeffares's W.B. Yeats: Man and Poet (Yale Univ. Pr., 1949). The new book incorporates material that has become available over the past 40 years, giving us an ample and convincing account of Yeats's personal and public lives. His development as a poet, however, is treated more fully in Richard Ellmann's Yeats: The Man and the Masks (Macmillan, 1948; Norton, 1978. rev. ed.), which remains the best critical biography. Jeffares's book is notable for its strong narrative line and its unmatched gathering of 150 superb photographs and drawings. The best general introduction to Yeats's life currently available, it belongs in all academic and public libraries.
