Yeats and American Poetry
The Tradition of the Self
Terence Diggory


This work is designed to show a double influence: first, that of American poets, especially Whitman, on W. B. Yeats, and, second, of Yeats on a wide range of American poets who began their careers during the first decades of the century.

First published in 1983.
