William Butler Yeats was an Irish poet whose work led significant artistic developments in the twentieth century. He is one of the progenitors of the modernist movement, influencing poets like Ezra Pound and T.S. Eliot with his sharp lines, political and cultural ideals, and varying forms. Yeats was also a leader during the Irish Literary Revival, using his art and political career to advocate for Irish independence. In this collector’s edition, the Easton Press recognizes Yeats’ cultural significance, especially to Ireland, with spectacular design and quality. It is part of their 100 Greatest Books Ever Written series. Accompanying the text are drawings by Robin Jacques that capture the essential tones of Yeats’ work.
