  • W.B. Yeats and the Sculpture of Brancusi

    • Authors: Jack Quin
      Abstract: W.B. Yeats was deeply engaged in a substantial body of art writing centered on the Romanian sculptor. Yeats referred to Constantin Brancusi’s work in AVA, AVB, and in a neglected verse-fragment from the introduction to the 1934 Cuala Press edition of The Words upon the Window-Pane. The aesthetic debates glossed in these references underscore his familiarity, and at times disagreements, with the authoritative writing of Ezra Pound on Brancusi and modern sculpture. By revivifying the connections between Pound’s writing on Vorticist sculpture in the 1910s, on Brancusi in the 1920s, and Yeats’s own partial but astute engagements with these same figures, we might complicate a prevailing Vorticist historiography of modernist sculpture. The “smooth, curved surfaces, and rounded figures,” however unsettling or humorous, became particularly magnetic and paradigmatic in the later writing of Yeats.

  • Defining Beauty: The Paterian Yeats

    • Authors: Elizabeth Muller
      Abstract: This essay contends that W.B. Yeats’s quest for beauty in art has far more in common with Walter Pater’s aesthetic views than is generally acknowledged. This article particularly focuses on Greek art, which provided both writers with paradigms with which to articulate their aesthetic theories. Yeats made ample use of Pater’s distinction between Ionian and Dorian art, and this opposition may in fact lie at the root of Yeats’s esoteric system set down in A Vision and based upon two contrary types of individuals, civilizations, and religions. The iconic power of art as a magical transformer of reality is asserted by both Pater and Yeats, and it is perhaps only in the question of the finality of art for Yeats, in the eschatological and magical dimension he attributed to it, that his path diverged from Pater.

  • Music, Setting, Voice: Maeterlinck's Pelléas et Mélisande and
           Yeats's The Countess Cathleen

    • Authors: Michael McAteer
      Abstract: Maurice Maeterlinck’s Pelléas et Mélisande is one of the finest and most influential works of French Symbolist drama from the 1890s. This essay examines the close affinities between the play and W. B. Yeats’s The Countess Cathleen as it was first performed in Dublin in 1899. In illustrating these affinities, it draws attention to performances of Pelléas et Mélisande that Yeats attended in London in 1898 and 1904. Examining features of Maeterlinck’s play and The Countess Cathleen in close detail, the essay develops Katharine Worth’s general observations on the aspects of theatre that Maeterlinck and Yeats shared. These include music, setting and voice; taking account of the development of Pelléas et Mélisande into opera and Yeats’s experiments with chant. The collaborative work of Yeats and George Moore, Diarmuid and Grania, is also considered in this regard, particularly as it relates to Moore’s aspiration for Edward Elgar to compose an opera based on the play. In the process, the essay considers those features of Pelléas et Mélisande and The Countess Cathleen that anticipate aspects of Martin Heidegger’s ontology in his seminal 1927 work, Being and Time. A preliminary version of this paper was presented at the W. B. Yeats 150th anniversary symposium, Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE), Budapest, Hungary, in November 2015, an occasion supported by the Irish Embassy in Budapest.

  • International Yeats Studies, Issue 2

    • Abstract: International Yeats Studies was conceived by the organizing board of the International Yeats Society as a means of bringing together national and other Yeats societies around the world. This journal is designed to complement the Yeats Annual, published under the general editorship of Warwick Gould. International Yeats Studies will be published twice a year and aims to include a variety of approaches to the study of Yeats. The editorial board draws together scholars from across the globe, and we hope that when it is possible, the journal will publish important essays translated into English from other languages. In addition to critical essays and reviews, we hope that the journal will serve as a platform for reports from the field, such as productions, readings, and other events that will be of interest to Yeats scholars everywhere.
