The long-term relationship between W. B. Yeats and his Muse is examined through a selection of his relevant poems. His spiritual/inspirational practice is placed in a historical context which begins in Greece, and his poetic masks are removed to reveal the humanistic man who created them.
This remarkably wide-ranging collection honours the poet Yeats and those who have lectured and tutored across the world on the man and his work. The US, Canada, UK, Hungary, Japan, New Zealand and Australia are represented in the essays.
