Pub. Date:
"Yeats's short fiction, rich in metaphor and symbolism, is preoccupied, like his poetry, with 'the war of spiritual with natural order'. Themes and figures recur, notably Hanrahan the Red, the last of Ireland's Celtic singers, and several of Yeats's restless heroes are seekers after forbidden knowledge, alchemists, lovers or mystics." "This volume contains Yeats's best short fiction. It includes his short novel, John Sherman, all the stories in The Secret Rose, and the 'companion' stories 'The Tables of the Law' and 'The Adoration of the Magi'."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
