KAVANAGH, J.: Life and Works of W.B. Yeats (The) (Unabridged)

The life of William Butler Yeats is a remarkable one—poet, playwright, essayist, politician, occultist, astrologer, founder of a national theatre, voluminous correspondent, lover, husband and father. It was a life that extended to a packed, sometimes frantic seventy-three years and left us with what many consider to be one of the finest collections of poetry from one voice.
