"Something that I read in a book": W. B. Yeats's Annotations at the National Library of Ireland

vol. 1: Reading Notes

Author Wayne K. Chapman

Clemson University Press in association with Liverpool University Press

  • Gives new approach to the display and delineation of texts, visual aids, and published variants.
  • Presents for the first time a complete array of amendments that Yeats made in copies of the relevant editions of his own works that he endeavored to revise, by "paste-pot" method, for later editions.
  • Includes a scholarly introduction, providing critical context and inductive analyses of Yeats's reading and sometimes collaborative efforts to edit, revise, and even rewrite his literary corpus, often with the assistance of his wife, George Yeats.
  • Provides easy-to-follow glosses to scholarly sources, with lists of variants as necessary, located conveniently in relation to texts that are presented in evidence by facsimile or transcription.
  • Augments the presentation of hundreds of annotated books with newly discovered materials in the National Library of Ireland and detailed treatment of collected editions of Yeats's poems, plays, signed and associated copies, and titles supplemental originating from the Yeats family's enterprise at the Dun Emer and Cuala Press.
