W. B. Yeats and Irish Modernism

This panel will focus on WBY’s work and life from the perspective of a
specifically Irish modernism. I’m interested in papers that would explore
any facet of his work and any stage of the career. Of particular relevance
would be papers treating WBY’s involvement in modernist cultural projects
centered in Ireland (e.g., theatre movements, “little magazines” and so
on) and the Irish dimension of projects that have their locus or impact
outside of Ireland (e.g., WBY’s dramatic productions in England, his
connections with Indian writers, his friendship with Ezra Pound). Also of
interest would be rereadings of “high modernist” works from an Irish

If you think you might be interested in the panel, send a short abstract
(no more than 200 words) and brief (3-4 sentence) note about yourself to
Gregory Castle at by May 10.
