William Butler Yeats (1865-1939) was one of the most distinguished Irish poets and playwrights of all time. A tireless leader of the Celtic revival and founder of the world famous Abbey Theatre in Dublin, he devoted much of his time and energy to the Irish Free State and Independence Movement in his role as Senator in the Irish Parliament. This, then, is his story, as presented in the 1st person and period costume by Dr. Covington, including dramatic readings from Yeats' most famous and immortal poems.
