The Life and Works

William Butler Yeats received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1923 and is one of Ireland's best-known poets. His life and works are examined in an exhibition at the Nobel Museum, on loan from the National Library of Ireland. The exhibition includes, amongst other things, a couple of short videos about Yeats and facsimiles of manuscripts.
