Rate this:
This is a reprint of a 1978 work on the life of John Butler Yeats. Murphy (ancient and modern literature, Union College) provides an account of what happened to this lovable, brilliant, and distressingly improvident man from day to day over the years. He draws upon letters, associations with Yeats' living descendants, relevant manuscripts, and other treasures to present a portrait that he states is not a final treatment or a complete biography, but is intended to provide material for others who wish to study some of the subjects touched upon more deeply. Contains several bandw photographs and drawings. c. Book News Inc.
