The cloud-encircled masses of Ben Bulben and Knocknarea, the mystical mountains and mysterious haunted glens of Co. Sligo which fascinated Yeats throughout his life. Walk through Inchy Wood and rest at Rosses Point where 'few countrymen would fall asleep under its low cliff' for fear of their soul being carried away. Lady Gregory's Coole Park, in Galway, is where many of Yeats' verse-plays were conceived, and his own tower at Ballylee was the setting for some of his greatest poems. Visit the royal haunts of 'Cashel of the Kings' and the Hill of Tara and contemplate Lough Derg, one of Ireland's most important places of pilgrimage. Finally, Dublin, the scene of Yeats' public battles as poet and playwright, patriot and politician and the scene of his ill-fated love for the wild and beautiful Maud Gonne.
These wonderfully varied photographs, by Alain Le Garsmeur, are accompanied by key extracts from the poet's works - extracts that recall the landscapes that he loved - and bring both Ireland and one of her greatest sons into the heart of the reader.Vom Verlag:
