This book focuses on the two works in the subtitle as well as on unpublished manuscripts and notebooks in the Yeats collection of the National Library of Ireland. The author argues that by the end of the 1890s Yeats had developed a coherent symbolic system based on his work with Irish folklore and mythology and that this system is most clearly delineated in the first editions of the work and in Yeats's unpublished papers. The book begins with a study of Yeats's Irish and Celtic sources, then moves on to outline the symbolic theory, drawing heavily on Yeats's notebooks. The theory is then applied in a critical study of the poems, prose, and plays of the last half of the 1890s.

J.M. Cohen Wrote That Yeats Was The Greatest Figure In English Poetry Since The Death Of Tennyson , And Ezra Pound, Who Once Went To Yeats To Learn How To Write Poetry, Wrote About Him : I Dare Say ... That Up To Date No One Has Shown Any Disposition To Supersede Him As The Best Poet In England Or Any Likelihood Of Doing So For Some Time... Yeats Is A Very Complex And Difficult Poet, Because There Is In Him A Curious Intermixture Of Romanticism, Realism, Mythology, Supernaturalism, Magic, Ocultism, Automatic Writing, Nationalism, Private Philosophy , And Even Prejudices. His Poems Are Very Compact, Allowing No Elaborations, And Leaving Gaps For The Reader To Imaginatively Fill Them Up, And Thus Making Them More Difficult. Great Explicators And Commentators Have, Of Course, Come Forward, But They Themselves, Sometimes, Are Either Difficult Or Not Enough. Therefore, The One Single Objective Of This Book Is To Introduce The Poet To The General Reader In An Easy Manner.To Give An Idea Of The Poet, As Many As Forty-One Poems, Selected From His Four Stages Of Poetic Development, Have Been Explained (And All Those Poems Have Been Quoted In Full). Yeats Had Also A Métier For Drama, And Had Been A Pioneer Of One Act Plays, And Wrote No Fewer Than Thirty Plays. And So Yeats Has Also Been Discussed As A Dramatist, And, In Addition, Eight Of His Plays Have Been Discussed At Some Length.

Explications and Contexts

W. B. Yeats's "A Vision": Explications and Contexts' is the first volume of essays devoted to 'A Vision' and the associated system developed by W. B. Yeats and his wife, George. 'A Vision' is all-encompassing in its stated aims and scope, and it invites a wide range of approaches-asdemonstrated in the essays collected here, written by the foremost scholars in the field. The first six essays present explications of broader themes in 'A Vision' itself: the system's general principles; incarnate life and the Faculties; discarnate life and the Principles; how Yeats relates his own work to other philosophical approaches; and his consideration of the historical process.A further three essays include an examination of the elusive 'Thirteenth Cone', a consideration of astrological features in the automatic script, and a view of the poetry within 'A Vision'. The final five essays look at contextual themes, whether of collaboration and influence-between husband, wife,and spirits, or with another poet-or the gender perspective within these interrelations, the historical context of Golden-Dawn occultism or the broader political context of fascism in the 1920s and 1930s. Throughout, the different contributors take a variety of stances with regard to texts and theautomatic script. This is an important contribution to Yeats scholarship in general and a landmark in studies of 'A Vision'.
