About Book

Book Description
Ireland is home to some of the world's most enchanting myths and tales. But many of these stories would have been lost if they hadn't been recorded and written down. Poet and Nobel laureate William Butler Yeats was one of these fortunate witnesses. In "The Celtic Twilight," originally published in 1893, he collected some of the most delightful myths and folktales of his native land.

Download Description
She met the spirit a third time in the bogeen. She asked what kept it from its rest. The spirit said that its children must be taken from the workhouse, for none of its relations were ever there before, and that three masses were to be said for the repose of its soul. "If my husband does not believe you," she said, "show him that," and touched Mrs. Kelly's wrist with three fingers. The places where they touched swelled up and blackened. She then vanished. For a time Montgomery would not believe that his wife had appeared: "she would not show herself to Mrs. Kelly," he said--"she with respectable people to appear to."

About the Author
William Butler Yeats (1865–1939) was a poet, dramatist, senator, and 1923 Nobel laureate for literature. With Lady Gregory, he founded the Irish Theatre, which later became the Abbey Theatre, and wrote a number of folktale-influenced plays, including "The Countess Cathleen," "The Land of Heart’s Desire," "Cathleen ni Houlihan," "The King’s Threshold," and "Deirdre."

His poetry was at turns esoteric, political, and mystical. The volumes "The Wild Swans at Coole," "Michael Robartes and the Dancer," "The Tower," "The Winding Stair and Other Poems," and "Last Poems and Plays" established him as one of the most influential poets of the 20th century.
