Mr. Yeats and Us

From Sep 3rd, 2015 To Sep 26th, 2015

Featuring Graham Gingles

Mr Yeats and Us

We both admire the work of W.B. Yeats, his use of language, his eloquence and the imagery in his poems. While one should not underestimate the importance of this imagery, however, and the many ways that one might use or respond to it, we have both found ourselves intrigued by other aspects of the man; his relationship with his family, his more esoteric pursuits and his extraordinary interest in spiritualism and the occult. We are also curious as to how, given his nationalist inclination, he rationalised his romantic, ‘Celtic Twilight’ view of Ireland with the reality of the country at that time. We hope that we can tease out an alternative dimension to the life of Mr Yeats, thereby complementing the more traditional view.
