An Analysis of Selected Poetry by William Butler Yeats Between 1918 and 1928

A re-analysis of W. B. Yeats's most difficult poetry, showing how it was edited by his wife to remove all traces of his Catholic lover, Lily O'Neill, and an illegitimate son. This book clearly shows that he was not writing about his wife George, or about Maud or Iseult Gonne. Find out how Yeats's wife, the Irish Free State Minister of Justice and the newly-established Garda Siochana manipulated him into denying all knowledge of his 'most exalted lady' and his first-born son.
