Softcover. Beltaine was a literary magazine edited by W. B. Yeats from May 1899 to April 1900. It was the first of several magazines of the Irish Literary Theatre (later to become The Abbey Theatre) in which Yeats's editorial role was of utmost importance. It was an occasional publication and focused on promoting current works of Irish playwrights. Beltaine marked Yeats's initial attempt to employ the medium of the periodical to promote and critically justify the modern dramatic literature of Ireland in a magazine . Its successors were the theatre pamphlets Samhain and The Arrow, also edited by Yeats. This copy of the initial issue has detached and torn covers and light foxing to the interior pages. Good only copy of this relatively scarce publication. 23 pages. DRAMA/042519. Good +.
