W. B. Yeats And The Idea Of A Theatre: The Early Abbey Theatre In Theory And Practice by James W. Flannery

| /

The most obvious difficulty in responding to Yeats' work in the theatre as dramatist, aesthetician, and theatre manager is the sheer complexity of his vision. To a considerable extent, this complexity arose from a lifelong conflict that raged within him-a conflict compounded of contrary impulses pulling him at once towards a life of introspection and towards a life of action and engagement.
