Fane of the Orchid Cult
William Butler Yeats
WB Yeats is a Nobel Prize winning Irish poet. He formerly lived at Thoor Ballylee and now resides in Dublin. While he has gained public notoriety for his Republican leanings in the Irish struggle for independence, recently his political outlook has become more cynically pragmatic than his radical countrymen would prefer.
Among his many published plays and books of poems, the first edition of The Tower is one of his most collectible publications, and this is the book that prompted John Dodgson to begin an obsessive fan correspondence with Yeats.
