Yeats XVII is the latest addition to the important annual that collects the best and most recent Yeats criticism. This volume includes essays by established and up-and-coming scholars and a bibliography of recent international scholarship on Yeats by K. P. S. Jochum. Special to this volume is a complete index of the articles and books reviewed in all seventeen issues. Featured original articles include: "Yeats: Cast-offs, Non-starters and Gnomic Illegibilities," by David R. Clark, which transcribes some little-known manuscript poems found in Yeats's notebooks and collections; "Our Lives with the Yeatses' Ghosts: The Writing and the Editing of the Automatic Script," by Barbara J. Frieling, Margaret Mills Harper, and Sandra L. Sprayberry, which balances literary criticism and biographical detail as it reevaluates the work done--by these authors and their contemporaries--on Yeats's compelling but enigmatic experiments with automatic writing; and "The Collar-Bone of a Hare: On a Manuscript by W. B. Yeats," by Louis Hout, which reveals the historical and biographical milieu in which Yeats created this famous inscription.
Richard J. Finneran is Professor of English, University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
