Synopsis:
To Yeats, as well as to Eliot, Pound, Joyce, and other major writers, as Erich Auerbach put it in Mimesis, "Antiquity means liberation and a broadening of horizons, not in any sense a new limitation or servitude." That is why Greco-Roman themes can be endlessly stimulating, why Yeats could call the Greek and Roman writers "the builders of my soul." Brian Arkin's thematic consideration of Yeat's subject matter under philosophy, myth, religion, history, literature, visual art, and Byzantium, allows us to see coherently how Yeats exploited this material and how, especially in his middle and later periods, he transformed and metamorphosed subject matter from Homer, Phidias, Plato, Plotinus, and Sophocles, and from the myths of Dionysus, Helen of Troy, Leda, and Zeus, to exemplify his central preoccupations. Irish Literary Studies Series No. 32.

About The Urban Bookie

Favorite Things: Browsing old bookstores, visiting libraries around the country, the smell of books, the promise you receive when you touch a book- to be transported, informed, challenged, thrilled, provoked, inspired, educated...the possibilities are endless. You will find an eclectic mix of books that are usually not available digitally. If I so happen to offer a book you can find digitally, they are normally signed, first editions and/or good reading. My interests are diverse, so it may appear there is no rhyme or reason to my offerings.. but I curate my selection relentlessly. I hope you enjoy browsing and buying! #theurbanbookiegrace,Reese
