Descrizione articolo

Riassunto:

There is far more to Jack B. Yeats than has met the eye. His father once said, "Some day I shall be remembered as the father of a great poet, and the poet is Jack." Purser argues that Jack B. Yeats' writings have been misunderstood, that the writer was educated among the people in the West of Ireland, without the social and literary preconceptions and traditions of the universities. He suggests that Jack Yeats was wily and clever in his use of symbolism. With this background in mind, and with the aid of evidence previously unusedóincluding a new chronologyónew interpretations are given for many of his works and an overall pattern in the novels is revealed. This book will be of great interest to students and scholars of literature, Irish literature, and Irish Studies.
