W. B. Yeats, Paperback / softback Book

W. B. Yeats Paperback / softback

Edited by Seamus Heaney

Part of the Poet to Poet series

Paperback / softback


In this series, a contemporary poet selects and introduces a poet of the past.

By their choice of poems and by the personal and critical reactions they express in their prefaces, the editors offer insights into their own work as well as providing an accessible and passionate introduction to some of the greatest poets in our literature. W. B. Yeats (1865-1939) was born in Dublin, and was educated in Ireland and England.

He was instrumental in the development of a national Irish theatre - and in particular, the founding of the Abbey Theatre.

He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1923.
