Mythologies is the definitive edition of W.B. Yeats's folklore and early prose fiction, edited according to Yeats's final textual instructions. Its extensive annotation makes luminous Yeats's 'fibrous darkness', that 'matrix out of which everything has come', by comprehensively dealing with oral and written sources, abandoned and unpublished writings. The documentation is especially designed to acknowledge Yeats's strategies of self-allusion and the special role folkloric prose plays in relation to his poetry, drama, autobiographical writings, speculative prose, essays and letters. Featuring a number of new images, this is the first time that a work of Yeats's has been edited according to 'Book History' principles, and will be fascinating reading for all students and scholars of Yeats. Winner of the 2006 Wheatley Medal prize for an outstanding index.
