Examines the relationship between Yeats, Irish literary nationalism and the publishing industry during the Irish Literary Revival in the late Nineteenth Century. It highlights the factors that shaped Yeats Irish literary nationalism and examines the way he continually modified his journalism and poetry to accommodate the often antagonistic perspectives of his Catholic, Protestant and Unionist editors and readers on contemporary political and cultural issues. Yeats' texts are read not just as aesthetic artifacts but as documents of their time, caught in the complexities of Irish politics and literary nationalism and influenced by fiercely partisan editorial advocacy and agendas. In doing so it illustrates that the standards bequeathed by Yeats' Celtic nationalism can be radically revised. This books sheds new light on the Irish Literary Revival which was propagated through the periodical press.
