Yeats in Love
by Annie West
by Annie West
‘As for Willie Yeats I love him dearly as a friend but I could not for one minute imagine marrying him.’
Yeats in Love is an illustrated, semi-fictional account of WB Yeats' obsessive yet ultimately fruitless pursuit of Maud Gonne, illustrated in detail on every painful page by award-winning Illustrator Annie West.
To celebrate WB Yeats' 150th Birthday in 2015, Annie has gathered together remarks from those who bore witness to this unfolding story- Douglas Hyde, Katherine Tynan, Lily and Lolly Yeats and others- and mixed them together with some of Yeats' most enduring love poems in this richly illustrated, handsomely bound Collector's edition from New Island Publishers in Dublin.
With an introduction by Theo Dorgan, and designed by Amy West, Yeats in Love promises to be the Book to delight and amuse lovers of literature, illustration and unrequited love for many years to come.
‘Annie West is a remarkable and individual artist with a sense of fun who combines skill in draftsmanship and colouring with a sly insight into literature.’
