The most influential poet of his age, Yeats eluded the grasp of many who sought to explain him. In this classic critical examination of the poet, Richard Ellmann strips away the masks of his subject: occultist, senator of the Irish Free State, libidinous old man, and Nobel Prize winner. National Book Award-winning biographer Richard Ellmann was the author of the landmark biographies James Joyce and Oscar Wilde, among many other highly praised works.

From Our Editors

After writing the acclaimed biographies of James Joyce and Oscar Wilde, author Richard Ellman turns his attention toward poet William Butler Yeats. Though many are unsuccessful in explaining his allure, this book takes away the writer’s many masks to show us what’s underneath. Yeats takes away his identities as occultist, senator and Nobel Prize winner.
