About the W. B. Yeats Collection


The W. B. Yeats Collection contains the major works of W. B. Yeats in all genres, including poetry, plays, criticism, and fiction, collected in 22 volumes. A single edition of each work, usually the last known to have been approved by Yeats, has been included. However, both of the widely different versions of A Vision (1925 and 1937) have been included. The W. B. Yeats Collection enjoys the active support of the Yeats Estate and has been compiled by leading Yeats scholar Professor Richard J. Finneran, Hodges Chair of Excellence at the University of Tennessee.

The entire text of each work by Yeats has been included. Any accompanying text written by the author and forming an integral part of the work has been include. Indexes of titles and first lines, and all apparatus written by the editors of the volume, have been excluded. Any images appearing in the text have been included.

Where available, the scholarly editions in the Scribner/Macmillan Collected Edition of the Works of W. B. Yeats (Richard J. Finneran and George Mills Harper, General Editors) have been used in the W. B. Yeats Collection. For works excluded from or not yet published in the Collected Edition, the best available text has been used, including other scholarly editions, such as The Speckled Bird (William H. O'Donnell, Editor), as well as texts prepared after Yeats's death with the assistance of his widow, George Yeats.

The arrangement of the W. B. Yeats Collection database is owned by Chadwyck-Healey, under license from Michael and Anne Yeats, and is protected by copyright and other laws that recognise the rights of the copyright holder.
