Irish poet and dramatist.
Typewritten Letter Signed, WB Yeats, one-half page, quarto, Riversdale, Rathfarnham, Dublin, May 21, 1933. On his imprinted stationery, to [Derek] Verschoyle, editor of the Spectator.
“I send you that review and it is the last I shall ever write. I havent that gift, my writings have to germinate out of each other. I spent about ten days on the thing and its not worth the trouble. It is something else altogether dressed out to look like a review.”
Written in the later years of his career when he was the established, sought-after literary eminence. No longer the aspiring writer, soliciting and flattering, William Butler Yeats felt free to say what he thought to the literary editor of the Spectator.
Framed (with a photograph, in a silver frame with dark gray inner and outer mats) dimensions: 20 inches wide by 17 inches high.
