The Only Jealousy of Emer and Fighting the Waves: Manuscript Materials (Cornell Yeats)
W. B. YeatsISBN: 0801442931;
Book DescriptionYeats is a poet as much of fact as of feeling. Every work of his has a source?whether from folklore, legend, mythology, the occult, or history: each a source that for him had a definite objective reality. The demands of this world and of that other world of Yeatsian spiritual reality often conflict. His play The Only Jealousy of Emer, particularly in its early drafts, offers a vivid portrayal of such a struggle. It marks one of the turning points of Yeats?s career, because in its final form it is a synthesis of two profound experiences that were to shape his later work: his marriage to Georgie Hyde-Lees in 1917 brought him a certain degree of contentment with the joys of this world, while her automatic script provided a philosophical framework for his poems and plays.
