Yeats and the Visual Arts

Elizabeth Bergmann Loizeaux

Paper $24.95s    |    0-8156-2995-8    |   2003

This beautifully illustrated volume traces Yeat's fascination with the visual arts and their influence on his poetry.

"Loizeaux ably demonstrates how influences in Yeats's early years, especially his interest in Pre-Raphaelite painting, helped shape his aesthetic theory and practice as a poet. She argues that the analogies Yeats often used between the visual arts and literature provide an apt way to characterize his own work. In the early verse, the governing analogy is poem-as-painting; later, influenced by his work in the theater, Yeats writes poems analogous to the three-dimensional forms of sculpture. Loizeaux's thorough documentation and scholarly approach make her book a useful contribution to our understanding of Yeats's poetry."
dashLibrary Journal

"In this book, Loizeaux, author of a number of articles on Yeats, offers the most closely argued study yet published of the relationship between the development of Yeats's poetics and the development of his conceptions regarding poetry and sculpture. . . Her central thesis [is] that Yeats's conception of the poem as picture gradually gives way to his conception of the poem as sculpture. Here she argues by way of a number of major poems, attempting to trace a central development rather than to be all-inclusive."
