"William Butler Yeats (13 June 1865 ¿ 28 January 1939) was an Irish poet and one of the foremost figures of 20th century literature. Yeats had a life-long interest in mysticism, spiritualism, occultism and astrology. He read extensively on the subjects throughout his life, and was especially influenced by the writings of Emanuel Swedenborg. As early as 1892, he wrote: "If I had not made magic my constant study I could not have written a single word of my Blake book, nor would The Countess Kathleen ever have come to exist. The mystical life is the centre of all that I do and all that I think and all that I write. He later became heavily involved with the Theosophical Society and with hermeticism, particularly with the eclectic Rosicrucianism of the Golden Dawn. "-from Wikipedia. "Hough gives an extensive history of the occult tradition and examines Yates's own beliefs and the relationship between magic and poetry. Hough reveals a poetry which is powerfully informed by an ancient magical tradition, yet remains deeply personal and modern. The final chapter presents an acute and stimulating analysis of the relationship as explored by Yeats in "A Vision"."-from DJ. Nº de ref. de la librería 1660
