Series Yeats Annual

A Yeats challenging his fin-de-siècle stereotype emerges from unknown images and ground-breaking essays in Yeats Annual 14: Yeats and the Nineties. Including Denis Donoghue's Ireland: Race, Nation, State, and focusing on Yeats's Fenianism, William Sharp (`Fiona Macleod'), the influence of Rossetti, and the origins of the Golden Dawn, this number collects newly-discovered lectures on Clairvoyance (Dorothea Hunter) and Thomas Davis (Lionel Johnson). Poems attributed to Yeats are shown to be by Gogarty. Nineteen editions and studies of Yeats, Blake and Beardsley, and stagings of Wilde and Synge are reviewed.
