"This is a wonderful critical history, meticulously providing a full context in time and place for all of Yeats's writings."The Sunday Tribune
Brown is especially good at showing how Yeats constructed his volumes of poetry as a 'work in progress', and at rooting his acheivements in the venemous politics of Dublin culture wars."New York Times Book Review
"The work is fascinating and a pleasure to read, Brown an illuminating and companiable guide."John McGahern, The Irish Times
"One of the many splendid qualities of Terence Brown's recent biography is its critical appreciation of the poet's extraordinary cultural accomplishments within the broader context of a brilliantly rendered political and social history of modern Ireland.
"Brown's book is nonetheless the finest single-volume biography of the Irish poet since the publication of Richard Ellmann's seminal Yeats: The Man and the Masks in 1948." Reason
