The Wild Swans at Coole

The Wild Swans at Coole

Manuscript Materials

First published in 1917 in a volume including twenty-three poems and a play, The Wild Swans at Coole was reissued in 1919 without the play and with seventeen additional poems. The Cornell Yeats edition includes transcriptions of manuscript materials for the poems in both collections, accompanied by a generous number of facsimiles.

The materials gathered here reveal the process by which Yeats wrote individual poems, established relations among them, and considered their possible placement in the collection, the last book that Yeats published in his lifetime.
