W. B. Yeats: The Writing of Sophocles King Oedipus (Memoirs 175)
David R. Clark and James B. McGuire
William Butler Yeats spent 24 years planning & finally producing his play “Sophocles’ ‘King Oedipus’” in 1928. Here, Drs. Clark & McGuire have written an extensive introduction divided into two parts: first, the years 1904 through 1911 when Yeats planned the production with various actors -- Ben Iden Payne, Murray Carson, Charles Power, & Nugent Monck; & second, from 1912 through 1926 when he actually wrote his versions. Profs. Clark & McGuire gleaned their information from Yeats’s letters & journals. The remainder of the book describes & presents the versions (Rex 1-5), some of which are transcribed because of the illegibility of Yeats’s hand. Photographic copies of Yeats’s hand are included. Illustrations.
