The Collected Works of W. B. Yeats, Volume V: Later Essays is part of a fourteen-volume series overseen by eminent Yeats scholars Richard J. Finneran and George Mills Harper. The series includes virtually all of the Nobel laureate's published work, with authoritative and explanatory textual notes. The Later Essays brings together for the first time twenty-one essays and introductions that Yeats published after 1912. They include the long essay "Per Amica Silentia Lunae," in which Yeats first developed his important doctrine of the mask and which is widely admired for the luxuriant beauty of its prose.
This definitive edition includes full explanatory notes and provides the first carefully researched, reliable texts of these twenty-one works.
