“A poet’s life is an experiment in living and those that come after have a right to know it.” – W.B. Yeats
The citation for Yeats’ Nobel Prize for Literature in 1923 praised his poetry for giving “expression to the spirit of a whole nation.”
Yeats was also a playwright, a critic, a journalist, a politician, and a founder of theatres, print houses, dance companies, and artistic societies.
This exhibition, based on material in the National Library of Ireland, celebrates his life, his works, and his contribution to the great debates of his age.
Exhibition Opening by Professor Steve Dixon in the presence of His Excellency Geoffrey Keating, Ambassador of Ireland.
