Extremely detailed and erudite

by AnnieLou on Jun 11, 2007

This nearly monumental work by RF Foster, will tax the reader of average interest in his topic, W B Yeats. A national poetry award for 1923, Yeats had a keen interest in irish nationalism, the drama and the occult. From a distinguished and highly talented family of artists, WB Yeats carves his own way, having first written lengthy verse and plays at the age of 15. His interaction with leading "feminists" of the day and talented actresses shaped a good deal of his writing for prose and poetry as well as drama. This volume 1 takes the reader up to his 50th year, when he has begun to become active in irish politics. Recommended only to serious students of this talented writer, as the details and finite references are a bit too much !
