Prodigal Father: The Life of John Butler Yeats (1839-1922)

כריכה קדמית
Syracuse University Press, 1 בספט׳ 2001 - 680 עמודים
This work on the life of lovable, brilliant, and distressingly improvident, John Butler Yeats provides an account of what happened to him from day to day over the years. It draws upon letters, associations with Yeats' living descendants, relevant manuscripts, and other treasures to present a portrait that is not a final treatment or a complete biography, but is intended to provide material for others who wish to study some of the subjects touched upon more deeply. -- Publisher description.
