W. B. Yeats’s A Vision

Explications and Contexts

Edited by Neil Mann, Matthew Gibson, and Claire Nally

W. B. Yeats’s A Vision: Explications and Contexts is the first volume of essays devoted to A Vision and the associated system developed by W. B. Yeats and his wife, George. A Vision is all-encompassing in its stated aims and scope, and it invites a wide range of approaches—as demonstrated in the essays collected here, written by the foremost scholars in the field. Throughout, the different contributors take a variety of stances with regard to texts and the automatic script.
