William Butler Yeats, The Lissadell Anthology
Yeat’s poetry is ‘universally and inexhaustibly relevant‘: Seamus Heaney, poet, 1995. ‘The greatest poet of our time – certainly the greatest in his language, and so far as I can judge, in any language. Yeats was one of those few poets who are a part of the consciousness of their age, which cannot be understood without them‘. T. S. Eliot, poet, 1940.
This Anthology is based on the Lissadell Yeats’ collection.
Aideen & Gabrielle: The Survival of Lissadell in the 20th century.
This is a story of the courage and determination of two sisters, Gabrielle and Aideen Gore-Booth, to preserve Lissadell and their father’s legacy from destruction.
Never before published, this book records the prison poetry & sketches of Countess Markievicz. Imprisoned many times during the years of Rebellion and Civil War, 1916- 1923, Countess Markievicz expressed her anger, despair,loneliness and hope in poetry and in drawings scribbled on scraps of paper smuggled out of her prison cells.
ALSO from the Lissadell Collection, Eva Gore-Booth Her Poetry & Sketches. Her friend W.B. Yeats often reviewed Eva’s poetry and advised her to “Keep before you the idea of doing a little delicate book of lyrics that nobody will know whether to call romantic or religious”.
The price of the books are €12 euro each or two for €20 euro plus postage.
