The manuscript materials intimate an acute imaginative engagement on Yeats’s part - an excitement growing out of sustained reverie
The manuscript materials intimate an acute imaginative engagement on Yeats’s part - an excitement growing out of sustained reverie. Soon after the play’s conception Yeats sensed its relation to the pattern of ideas that had gone into the writing of On The Boiler which he was completing alongside the drafting of the drama between March and May of 1938.

Book DescriptionYeats is a poet as much of fact as of feeling
Every work of his has a source?whether from folklore, legend, mythology, the occult, or history: each a source that for him had a definite objective reality. The demands of this world and of that other world of Yeatsian spiritual reality often conflict. His play The Only Jealousy of Emer, particularly in its early drafts, offers a vivid portrayal of such a struggle.
