5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for Yeats Scholars, 13 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: W. B. Yeats and George Yeats: The Letters (Hardcover)
Keeping up with the Yeats industry is a costly business: the publication of the Manuscript Materials and the Collected Letters are essential to any Yeats scholar, but are becoming increasingly expensive. This collection of letters, by contrast, is considerably less expensive than those sources.

This volume, admirably edited by Ann Saddlemyer, contains all of the remaining letters exchanged between W.B. Yeats and his wife from before their marriage to Yeats's death. However it is the annotation that is important for Yeats scholars. This is scrupulous and up to the extremely high standard of the four volumes of The Collected Letters of W.B. Yeats published so far. Yet is is probably not for the casual reader. Much of its content is in Saddlemyer's "Becoming George", her life of Mrs. Yeats; and while what is said in the letters might interest a casual reader, such a reader is very unlikely to be interested in the extensive detail of the footnotes.
