€34.99

To commemorate the 150th birthday of the Nobel Laureate, acclaimed illustrator Annie West takes a wry look at the hapless, nerdy love life of WB Yeats, and tracks, in a semi-fictitious way, his relentless and ultimately unsuccessful pursuit of the flame haired, short tempered patriot, Maud Gonne.

‘As for Willie Yeats I love him dearly as a friend but I could not for one minute imagine marrying him.’

- Maud Gonne

 

Annie West’s irreverent art brings to life W.B. Yeats’s futile pursuit of the beautiful, unobtainable Maud Gonne. Introduced by Theo Dorgan, and complete with poetry by Yeats as well as quotes by those who bore witness to his infatuation, including Katharine Tynan, Douglas Hyde and his own sisters, Lolly and Lily, Yeats in Love is a truly original depiction of a decades-long adolescent crush.
