Yeats began his career by writting a series of plays in his teens, and finished his last play, "The Death of Cuchulain" shortly before his death at the age of 73. Yeats was a man of the theatre just as much as a lyric poet, managing Dublin's famous Abbey Theatre for many years. With an introduction and notes on each play, Professor Jeffares has selected a total of 12 plays which range from the patriotic "Cathleen ni Hoolihan", the mixture of farce and symbolism in "The Player Queen" and the realistic "The Words Upon the Window-Pane" and the wild fantasy "The Herne's Egg".

W B Yeats (1865 - 1939) is one of the great and innovative poets of the twentieth century. Much of his most vigorous verse on love, sex, Irish and international politics, the complexities of the occult and the 'sedentary toil' of poetry was producedin the years between his fiftieth birthday in 1915 and his death in 1939.
