rich and distinguished work of scholarship Conor Cruise O'Brien, The Listener wonderfully edited by John Kelly ... nothing goes unexplained. The notes provide, often wittily, historical details about the 1880's and 1890's that no one has previously compiled. Kelly has performed many extraordinary feats of research. The biographical notes at the end are well written and helpful, and the analytical index on Yeats is just what is needed. Richard Ellman, The New Republic it is no exaggeration to claim that it marks a milestone in Yeats scholarship. The significance of this first volume lies not only in the content of the letters alone, but also in the sheer mass of beckground erudition assembled in this volume ... for a long, long time this monumental edition of Yeat's letters will be enlightening and delighting us. John P. Frayne, Journal of English and Germanic Philology This first volume sets a superlative standard for the books to come. Virtually every editorial and typographical decision taken here contributes to the usefulness, legibility, and attractiveness of the work. The Modern Language Review

MEDIA REVIEWS
What a vibrant, complex, forceful, self-questioning personality shines through these letters.... Kelly shows epic scholarly skills. His notes are copious and informative, and he adds considerably to our understanding of Yeats. he has taken on the task of editing the letters of one of the greatest poets and worst pellers of our times, and he has done a magnificent job.... Yeats...is here honored by the sort of scrupulous attention he himself gave to all poetry and people he considered worthwhile. * The New York Times Book Review. Compelling, entertaining, stamped with Yeats's creative power; dip into it almost anywhere, and you are likely to find yourself completely absorbed. *
