Description
W.B. Yeats, Arthur Symons, Ernest Dowson, Lionel Johnson, and John Davidson were some of the dozen or so poets who went in the early 1890s to Rhymers' Club meetings at Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese and other rendezvous sites to discuss their work and read it aloud. Norman Alford's concise, clear, and fully documented account of the lives together and apart of these poets whom Yeats retrospectively named 'the tragic generation' is the first of its kind and is addressed not only to academics but to all who wish for a poet's-eye view of the 1890s.
