Last Poems and Plays

New York: The Macmillan Company, 1940. Hardcover. This book " brings to work of William Butler Yeats to a full close, comprising over fifty poems written from 1936 to his death in 1939, and two plays, 'The Death of Cuchulain' and 'Purgatory.' This is a book both gay and thoughtful. Were Yeats still living, it would be welcomed as an exciting and vigorous contribution from a mind still in mid-career. As the product of his last years, it is amazing; both poems and plays are rich in individuality, in wit, and in romantic passion." (jacket).
