Wisdom of Two: The Spiritual and Literary Collaboration of George and W.B. Yeats

By Margaret Mills Harper | Go to book overview

Acknowledgements

The road to this book was paved with support, beginning with the encouragement, knowledge, and loving wisdom of my parents, the late George Mills and Mary Jane Harper. The Yeats family, especially the late Anne Yeats, Michael and Gráinne Yeats, and Síle Yeats, have been unfailingly generous and helpful. I owe a special debt to Ann Saddlemyer, the definitive biographer of GY, who has always been available for advice, information, patient criticism, and encouragement. Of the many scholarly friends who have offered me assistance along the way, I can name only a few. I am particularly grateful to George Bornstein, Rand Brandes, Fran Brearton, Patricia Coughlan, Elizabeth Butler Cullingford, the late Richard J. Finneran, Anne Fogarty, R. F. Foster, Michael Patrick Gillespie, Warwick Gould, David Holdeman, Walter K. and Connie Hood, Clare Hutton, Edna Longley, Lucy McDiarmid, Gillian McIntosh, Catherine Paul, James Pethica, Deepika Petraglia-Bahri, John Rickard, Louis D. Rubin, Jr., W. Ronald Schuchard, Weldon Thornton, Deirdre Toomey, Helen Vendler, George Watson, and Clair Wills. Among the many students whose work has enriched mine I thank Joanne Baste and Christopher Blake especially, as well as Sabine Müller and Josephine Yu, student assistants whose help went well beyond the call of duty. My colleagues at Georgia State University have been unfailingly helpful, reading drafts and answering questions; thanks are due especially to Gayle Austin, Janet Gabler-Hover, Randy Malamud, Marilynn Richtarik, and Calvin Thomas. Friends who have provided encouragement, criticism, and material support (sometimes in the form of spare beds and square meals) include Barbara Allen and Leonard Reich, Eugenia Colina Bolado and Ciaran Dawson, Sue Buchholz and Mary McFarland, Randy Hecht, Currie Leggoe, Donagh and Lizanne MacArtain, Julie and Michael McBride, Claire Ní Mhuirthile and Pádraig Ó Duinnín, Larry Roddam, Tom Clyde
