About W. B. Yeats

William Butler Yeats wurde am 13. Juni 1865 im irischen Sandymount bei Dublin geboren. Yeats studierte erst Kunst bevor er sich ab 1880 der Literatur zuwandte. Er lernte Oscar Wilde kennen und setzte sich sehr für die englischsprachige irische Literatur ein. William Butler Yeats gründete mit der Unterstützung von Lady Gregory 1899 das Abbey Theatres in Dublin, das spätere irische Nationaltheater und schrieb zahlreiche Stücke für sein Theater. Yeats schrieb Prosa, Lyrik, Dramen und Essays. 1923 wurde ihm der Nobelpreis für Literatur verliehen. Am 28. Januar 1939 starb William Butler Yeats in Roquebrune-Cape-Martin, in der Nähe von Nizza.
