9780755116720: Representative Irish Tales

First published in 1891, W B Yeats' anthology of nineteenth-century Irish fiction is of great significance in his early career. Yeats' selection is tailored to illustrate the ways that the principal Irish novelists represented Irish character; in particular how well they had depicted the Irish peasantry and their lives. His introductory commentary and editorial notes provide a fascinating perspective on this relatively unknown but influential phase of his work, while his observations on individual authors emphasises the idiosyncrasies of the novelists' lives as well as the qualities of their fiction.

About the Author:

W B Yeats was born in Dublin, Ireland, in 1865 and spent much of his childhood in County Sligo, a place he loved and often wrote about. Yeats is often said to be a man of contradictions: he was profoundly intelligent and yet committed to spiritualism and the supernatural; he was philosophical and yet emotionally bound to a woman who did not return his devotion; he was aristocratic and detached and yet motivated by and artistically concerned with the most elementary of human impulses. In 1922 he was elected a senator of the Irish Free Republic and the following year he won the Nobel Prize for Literature. W B Yeats is remembered as an important cultural leader and as one of the greatest poets of the century. He died in 1939.
