Description
Award-winning biographer Brenda Maddox examines W. B. Yeats through the lens of the Automatic Script, the trance-like communication with supposed spirits that he and his wife conducted during the early years of their marriage. These "vision papers" -- which include more than 3,600 pages of writing -- were not available until 1992 and still remain virtually untouched by biographers. Maddox's revealing biography encompasses Yeats's early years, his silent, dreamy mother who steered him into the occult with her Irish ghost stories, and the mature Yeats. Here as well is new information on his public career in Ireland, his sexual rejuvenation operation, and his obsession with several younger women. Indeed, Yeats's Ghosts is a landmark biography -- the first ever to expose the intense privacy and passions of a powerful and often misunderstood artist
