A brilliant re-examination of W.B. Yeat's place in literature and history * Robert Gerwarth, Irish Times Books of the Year 2011 *
Sparkling * Helen Vendler, New Republic *
A superbly original analysis of what his nineteenth-century Irish inheritance meant to Yeats. * Colm Toibin, Irish Times Books of the Year 2011 *
this richly atmospheric book both complicates and enhances our view of history and Yeats's place in it. By the simple virtue of its own excellence, it deserves a wide readership. * Adam O'Riordian, The Independent *
[Foster's] Yeatsian backward look proves irresistible. * Times Literary Supplement *
Great achievement. * Irish Times *
