A re-analysis of W. B. Yeats's poetry showing how it was edited by his wife to remove all traces of his Catholic lover, Lily O'Neill, and an illegitimate son. Clearly he was not writing about his wife George, or about Maud or Iseult Gonne. Find out how Yeats's wife, the Irish Free State Minister of Justice and the newly-established Garda Siochana manipulated him into denying all knowledge of his 'most exalted lady' and his first-born son.
