Autobiographies by W. B. Yeats
Autobiographies is made up of six autobiographical works that Yeats published in the mid 1930s. Together, they provide a fascinating insight into the first 58 years of his life. The work provides memories of his early childhood, through to his experience of winning the Nobel Prize for Literature. The volume contains explanatory notes and previously unpublished passages from candidly explicit first drafts.
