5.0 étoiles sur 5 Faerie Folklore of a Shadowy Ireland of Celtic Mysteries ! 3 mai 2005
Par Michael Chesbro - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
In Celtic Twilight, originally published in 1902, Yeats recites several accounts of encounters with the faerie folk and with the people of Ireland of the time which gives us insight into Irish folklore, myth and legend.

Yeats associates poetry with religious ideas and sentiment. And, I believe that he saw himself as writing for Ireland, but a shadowy Ireland of Celtic mysteries and legends, not the Ireland of the modern day. By modern day, of course, I relate this to the modern day of Yeats in the late 1890s and early 1900s.

In the introduction to Celtic Twilight Yeats states; "I have therefore written down accurately and candidly much that I have heard and seen, and, except by way of commentary, nothing that I have merely imagined. I have, however, been at no pains to separate my own beliefs from those of the peasantry, but have rather let my men and women, dhouls and faeries, go their way unoffended or defended by any argument of mine."

I got the strong impression from reading Celtic Twilight that Yeats actually believed in the existence of the faeries. Not just as some myth or legend, but as actual beings that exist in this world, though perhaps unseen by the common man. He wrote each story as if it was something that actually happened, having been related to him by the storyteller, or perhaps that which he had seen for himself in some past time, now recalled as he set pen to paper.

There is a depth to Yeats' writing that lies just below the surface, something that's perceived more than seen. The idea that perhaps magic and the faerie folk are alive in the world of today, but unseen, or perhaps only seen from time to time as a fleeting shadow until one knows just where to look.

It is interesting to note that Yeats was heavily involved in occult studies and practices as part of the Madame Helene Blavatsky's,Theosophical Society and later, the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, and finally in 1912 the Ordo Templi Orientis.

This would have certainly influenced his outlook on life and his belief in, and dare we say ability to see the unseen things of this world.

I too ask myself from time to time; just what unseen things exist in this world. Perhaps Yeats has seen that which other men can only hope for, or that which they turn away from in dread given the course of their spirits.

Yeats also makes a profound observation: "The things a man has heard and seen are threads of life, and if he pull them carefully from the confused distaff of memory, any who will can weave them into whatever garments of belief please them best."

I found Yeats' observation of particular interest, especially when it comes to theological or philosophical thought. If it is those things that we hear and see in life that forms the fabric of our beliefs, then surely we must take care that that which we see and hear forms strong enough threads so that the fabric we weave is not shoddy.

Yeats' works help us build those strong threads in our lives. For, he certainly influenced the world at large with his writings. In 1923 Yeats was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, and in 1934 he shared the Gothenburg Prize for Poetry with Rudyard Kipling.

I personally love W.B. Yeats. At first I was a little disappointed by the size of the book (it was thinner than I thought it would be), but it made up for it in content. I highly recommend this book to fans of Yeats, and to anyone following a similiar spiritual path to his. This book opens up Yeats' mind to you, the reader, and I hope you find this book as wonderful as I did! As a college student, I thoroughly enjoyed reading it!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Celtic Twilight 16 juillet 2009

Written in the elegant style of Yeats. Considered by some to be among his finest works. A journey into the heart and soul of Ireland. A time of Fae folk and superstition or some alter reality long forgotten?

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Misleading Title 10 février 2013
Par Daermi - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This book probably should have been called, "Random Musings of Yeats." There is a little regional folklore recorded here, mostly from areas near where Yeats grew up, but it mostly pertains to events that have happened in the last couple generations, rather than being very old stories passed down over centuries. Yeats records a couple of his own trance experiences where he percieves faeries. But there are also entries about God and Christianity that are sometimes purely the author's own reflections and a couple entries about beautiful women as remembered by men who knew them, which have little to nothing to do with Celtic folklore. It reads more like a writer's journal of loosely related inspirational sources, than an anthology of folklore from circa 1900, which is what I was expecting. If you just like Yeats and are curious about the author's mind and spiritual beliefs, you might like this book. If you're doing research into Irish folklore, it's not very helpful.

Par M. Kinder - Publié sur
This book is basically a collection of personal encounters with the Faerie as told to Yeats by country folk he encountered during his research.
