Summary
"This is the second of two volumes containing transcriptions and in many cases facsimiles of all surviving manuscripts of the poetry that Yeats had published by 1895, together with the later revisions of that poetry. In addition, the volume provides manuscript materials for thirty-eight newly discovered poems that Yeats is not known to have published: over two dozen of these appear here for the first time. The inclusion of so much previously unknown work will significantly alter interpretations of Yeats and of modern poetry more generally." "Whereas Volume 1 reproduced materials pertaining to the early dramatic verse The Island of Statues and Mosada, Volume II includes the other important poems in Yeats's first two books of verse. The Wanderings of Oisin and Other Poems and The Countess Kathleen and Various Legends and Lyrics, and in his 1895 collection, Poems. The nearly four hundred pages of previously unpublished manuscripts include working drafts of some of Yeats's best-known poems, such as "The Wanderings of Oisin," "The Lake Isle of Innisfree," "The Two Trees," and the Rose lyrics." "Most of the newly discovered poems date from the mid-1880s and reveal how Yeats experimented with style, stance, and subject during the crucial years at the beginning of his poetic career. Nine others written in the 1890s display a more polished technique, and many of these address the themes of Yeats's love for Maud Gonne and his occult interests. The editor's introduction to this volume will replace the familiar image of the young Yeats as dreamy and apolitical with a more accurate perception of him as a poet highly involved in the political and cultural issues of his day."--Jacket
