Literary critic and historian Dwight Eddins brings us this unprecedentedly close comparative analysis of the verse texture and generic concepts of Yeats' early work. Through a careful unraveling of the influences both English and Irish, literary and existential, Eddins crafts a nuanced portrait of the young writer. In a unique approach, Eddins also lays attention to the delayed appearance of youthful influences in Yeats' mature verse.
