Terence Brown is Professor of Anglo-Irish literature in Trinity College, Dublin and a Fellow of the College. He is also a member of the Royal Irish Academy and of the Academia Europaea, and has lectured widely on Irish literature and on Irish cultural history. Among his books are studies of Louis MacNeice and of Northern Irish poetry. His numerous publications include Ireland: A Social and Cultural History (1985) and Ireland's Literature: Selected Essays (1988). He is also editor of Derek Mahon: Journalism (1996) and Celticism (1996), and was formerly a contributing editor of the Field Day Anthology of Irish Writing.
"For general readers and undergraduates, Brown's is the best choice. Brown's excellent biography is highly recommended for all readership levels."Choice "This is a wonderful critical history, meticulously providing a full context in time and place for all of Yeats's writings."The Sunday Tribune Brown is especially good at showing how Yeats constructed his volumes of poetry as a 'work in progress', and at rooting his acheivements in the venemous politics of Dublin culture wars."New York Times Book Review "The work is fascinating and a pleasure to read, Brown an illuminating and companiable guide."John McGahern, The Irish Times "One of the many splendid qualities of Terence Brown's recent biography is its critical appreciation of the poet's extraordinary cultural accomplishments within the broader context of a brilliantly rendered political and social history of modern Ireland. "Brown's book is nonetheless the finest single-volume biography of the Irish poet since the publication of Richard Ellmann's seminal Yeats: The Man and the Masks in 1948." Reason "Exceptional!!!!"
