Mythologies is the definitive edition of W.B. Yeats's folklore & early prose fiction, edited according to Yeats's final textual instructions.
Its extensive annotation makes luminous Yeats's 'fibrous darkness', that 'matrix out of which everything else has come', by dealing with oral & written sources, abandoned & unpublished writings. Mythologies is a must-have for any fan of Yeats.
William Butler Yeats is generally considered to be Ireland’s greatest poet, living or dead, and one of the most important literary figures of the twentieth century. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1923.
