William Butler Yeats

William Butler Yeats (1865-1939) was born in Dublin and educated largely in London. He was part of the fin de siècle literary movement in that city, and returned to Ireland to help advance the Irish literary revival. Although a convinced patriot, Yeats deplored the hatred and the bigotry of the Nationalist movement, and his poetry is full of moving protests against it. Initially better known for his drama, Yeats increasingly turned to lyric poetry and, unusually, wrote much of his greatest and lasting work after receiving the Nobel Prize in 1923.
