William Butler Yeats: Personality

  • Lennox Robinson


The scene is walla-walla, a small town in the extreme north-west of the United States. I arrived there early after travelling all night. I had to lecture to its college in the morning, then there was an official lunch, another lecture in the afternoon (I was advance publicity man for the Abbey Theatre Company), there was to be an evening reception and then a midnight train to Denver. I snatched an hour in the late afternoon and rested on my hotel bed. The inevitable telephone rang; a young man from the college wanted to see me. He appeared, the editor of the college magazine. He wrote poetry and he left with me a few good poems. But he said : ‘Have you ever met Mr. Yeats?’
