W.B. Yeats: A Reassessment

A four-week summer institute for twenty-five college and university teachers on William Butler Yeats' life and work, to be held in Ireland.

?W.B. Yeats: A Reassessment? proposes an NEH Institute for twenty-five college and university teachers to be held in Galway and Sligo, Ireland, in the July and August, 2008. It will convene a faculty of Yeats scholars from Ireland, the U.S. and the U.K. to consider how Yeats?s life and work can be resituated drawing on new resources available only in the last twenty years, specifically new biographies of Yeats and his family, the publication of the source documents for Yeats?s A Vision, and new editions of his poems, plays, critical and occasional writing, and letters. The Institute will make extensive use of material and cultural sites in Ireland, including the collections at the National Library of Ireland (Dublin) and a major exhibition there entitled W.B. Yeats, Works and Days. A last week at the Yeats Summer School in Sligo will give participants access to diverse critical perspectives on Yeats?s work.
