♥ Book Title : Yeats's Poetry in the Making
☯ Full Synopsis : "This book traces the creative process in Yeats's writing, in his making and remaking of verse, and in the development of a whole body of work during the last forty years of his life. Lyrical and philosophical poetry, verse-drama, the shifting contexts of personal and political events – including controversy, world and civil war, and a large dose of artistic experimentation - are all dealt with here. The book is illustrated and loaded with unpublished material, including the extant remains of Yeats's ambitious but unfinished “fifth play for dancers”, based on the local legends of Ballylee that Yeats made his own. The book addresses overlooked or inadequately presented findings in Yeats studies and brings to light much wholly new matter, including a comprehensive 'Chronology' of the composition of poems, the first since Ellmann's The Identity of Yeats. The book welcomes newcomers interested in detailed narratives about poetry “well-made” and life well-lived."Article| Wayne K. Chapman| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Seamus Heaney
☯ Full Synopsis : "More than most contemporary poets, Seamus Heaney's work reflects a search for personal and cultural identity, a desire to come to terms with his own unique heritage. In this study, Floyd Collins develops a model of crisis that proves an apt tool for assessing Seamus Heaney's poetic career. In his assessment of Heaney's literary influences, Collins establishes the crisis of identity as a palpable reality for such predecessors as William Butler Yeats, Patrick Kavanagh, James Joyce, and other Irish writers. Inevitably intertwined with his upbringing as a rural Catholic in Ulster, Heaney's complex and ongoing responses to his literary ancestors are a crucial part of his poetic identity. Though he recognizes elements of his own crisis in their lives and work, he is unable to emulate them without qualification; thus, they have functioned as significant sources of positive and negative identity throughout his career. Heaney's confrontations with Yeats and Joyce in particular receive special emphasis here. Collins also considers Heaney's work as a translator, which has provided fresh voices, new masks, and the reassuring continuity of a native literary tradition that emerged long before Yeats and Joyce. Collins also weighs the critical reception of Heaney's works and the pressures placed on contemporary Irish poets to respond to the Troubles. Though first and foremost a literary study, Seamus Heaney: The Crisis of Identity places Heaney's work within a broad scholarly matrix, drawing on folklore, archaeology, geography, cultural studies, psychology, and history to clarify the impact of Heaney's native culture upon his life and poetry."Article| Floyd Collins| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : A Reader's Guide to William Butler Yeats
☯ Full Synopsis : "The poetry of William Butler Yeats presents unusual problems for the general reader. Yeats drew heavily upon mystical and theosophical systems of a more or less arcane nature. Moreover, he often referred to events in his own life and in the history of modern Ireland which require elucidition for the non-specialist. A Reader's Guide to William Butler Yeats not only provides the background needed for an understanding of the works but also reveals the structure of images and meanings of the various lyrics."Article| John Eugene Unterecker| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : The Irish Drama of Europe from Yeats to Beckett
☯ Full Synopsis : "This study provides a European perspective on the drama of Yeats and of the Irish playwrights ? Wilde and Synge, O'Casey and Beckett ? who share in the achievement of creating a modern 'drama of the interior'. Professor Worth traces in particular the influence of Maeterlinck, examining his 'static drama' in some detail. A dominant theme is the importance of total theatre techniques to the playwrights of the interior from Wilde in SalomÃ© to O'Casey in plays like Cock-a-Doodle Dandy. Yeats is seen as the great pioneer, assimilating inspiration from the French, with Arthur Symons as guide, from Synge, from Gordon Craig and from the No drama, and evolving a modern technique for a drama of complex self-consciousness."Article| Katharine Worth| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Thought Outdanced
☯ Full Synopsis : "Dancing is as old as humanity. It has always been a way of expressing intense emotions and indicating the influence of transcendental powers. At the beginning of human history the individual and the world formed an organic unity, but as a result of social development this original state ceased to exist. Dancing can restore that unity and reabsorb the Dancer into the Universe. For William Butler Yeats and James Joyce, who differ from one another in so many respects, dancing and the figure of the dancer became important symbols. Apart from the detailed analysis of the works, this book offers a cultural-historical access to the characteristic productions of the fin-de-sicle period, recalling the performances of Loie Fuller, Isadora Duncan, Vaslav Nijinski, Anna Pavlova, and the other famous or ill-famed dancers. For the two Irish artists the dancer, balancing on the borderlines of everyday reality and the transcendental world, of body and soul, of the relationship of the masses and the a"Article| Judit Nényei| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Violence, Narrative and Myth in Joyce and Yeats
☯ Full Synopsis : "Arguing that art is a form of social praxis, this book examines the capitalist ethos of serial reproduction of objects as one that also produces individuals as serial types. Art as praxis makes possible the reconstruction of one's identity and material environment as irreproducible, unique, and original art texts. Art becomes the tool of a creative process that has both material and spiritual dimensions. In recreating the self and the world as aesthetically unique, original and irreproducible, art challenges the capitalist ethos of reproduction that leads to routine, dissatisfaction and alienation.This theory is rooted in the anarchist intellectual tradition, especially Georges Sorel's conceptualisation of the relations between art, violence and social myth, in which workers are regarded as artisans, artists and activists. Balinisteanu illustrates this through analyses of the ways in which James Joyce and W. B. Yeats, along with key modernist writers and philosophers, facilitated the reconstruction of the social self and social-material reality in a process where political action also became an action of aesthetic creation."Article| Tudor Balinisteanu| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Under the Moon
☯ Full Synopsis : "While working on a facsimile edition and transcription of W. B. Yeats's surviving early manuscripts, renowned Yeats scholar George Bornstein made a thrilling literary discovery: thirty-eight unpublished poems written between the poet's late teens and late twenties. These works span the crucial years during which the poet "remade himself from the unknown and insecure young student Willie Yeats to the more public literary, cultural, and even political figure W. B. Yeats whom we know today." "Here is a poetry marked by a rich, exuberant, awk-ward, soaring sense of potential, bracingly youthful in its promise and its clumsiness, in its moments of startling beauty and irrepressible excess," says Brendan Kennelly. And the Yeats in these pages is already experimenting with those themes with which his readers will become intimate: his stake in Irish nationalism; his profound love for Maud Gonne; his intense fascination with the esoteric and the spiritual. With Bornstein's help, one can trace Yeats's process of self-discovery through constant revision and personal reassessment, as he develops from the innocent and derivative lyricist of the early 1880s to the passionate and original poet/philosopher of the 1890s. Reading-texts of over two dozen of these poems appear here for the first time, together with those previously available only in specialized literary journals or monographs. Bornstein has assembled all thirty-eight under the title Yeats had once planned to give his first volume of collected poems. Under the Moon is essential reading for anyone interested in modern poetry."Article| William Butler Yeats| Statement ..."
