This book deals with editing Yeats' poems and is a companion to the revised edition of W.B.Yeats "The Poems - A New Edition". It outlines the complex problems facing an editor of Yeats' poetry and explains the solutions adopted in the new text. Manuscript materials are drawn on extensively, including some which have recently come to light in the Scribner archives at the Univeristy of Texas and at Princeton University. Compared with the first edition of this volume, there is an additional chapter on the order of the poems as well as new information on the Scribner edition and other revisions throughout. Richard Finneran is the editor of "Yeats: An Annual of Critical and Textual Studies".
