Largely responsible for founding Dublin’s Abbey Theatre, home of the Irish National Theatre Society established in 1901, Yeats wrote several fine plays that were performed there. He was made a senator of the Irish Free State in 1922 and received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1923.
Author David Ross has written an engaging and accessible biography of W.B. Yeats. Given the huge range of Yeats’ interests – poetry, philosophy, history, mysticism and politics – and his eventful personal and public lives, Ross has deftly captured the spirit of the man and his work, relationships and beliefs.
