Based on complete and unprecedented access to Yeats's papers, this is the final volume in Foster's definitive biography of one of the world's greatest and most intriguing poets. National advertising. Author Tour.
From the Publisher:
A concluding installment in the two-part biography considers the poetic, political, and personal dynamics of the poet's final decades, tracing how such factors as the Easter Rebellion and the founding of the Irish state influenced his later works. (Biography)
Annotation:
R. F. Foster continues his biography of Yeats. In this second volume, Yeats is taken from age 50 to his death at 79. Included in those years were World War I, Ireland's Easter Uprising, and the establishment of the Irish Free State--during all of which Yeats maintained a controversial stance. He was also awarded the Nobel Prize (in 1923).

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"Foster's knowing, richly detailed investigation is a remarkable achievement, essential to serious students of Yeats's life and work." 08/15/2003

New York Times Book Review
"[A] formidable scholarly achievement. The research that informs it is staggering; its critical dissections are delicate and acute; and its supple, lucid prose is splendidly stylish....Grippingly readable and intellectually rich, the book is without doubt one of the mightiest biographies of our age." - Terry Eagleton 12/08/2003

New York Review of Books
"[A] great and important work, a triumph of scholarship, thought, and empathy such as one would hardly have thought possible in this age of disillusion. It is an achievement wholly of a scale with its heroic subject." - John Banville 02/26/2004
