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.
