Richard Ellman is trying to solve a mystery. In 1917, a young bride on her honeymoon suddenly fell into a trance, and began receiving messages from beyond the grave. Where did the voices come from, and what did she believe?
The newlyweds were W.B. Yeats and his wife George. Yeats’s Ghosts tells the true story of the poet’s obsessive passion for Maud Gonne, his improbable marriage to George Hyde-Lees, the strange events of 1917, and the poetry it inspired.
