Dolmen Press, 1982. Trade Paperback. Very Good., Dolmen Press, 1982, New Haven, Conn. ; London : Yale University Press, 2000. First Edition. Fine cloth copy in a near fine, very slightly edge-nicked and dust-dulled dust wrapper, now mylar-sleeved. Remains particularly and surprisingly well-preserved; tight, bright, clean and sharp-cornered. Physical description; xix, 604 p. : ill., ports. ; 24 cm. Notes; Includes bibliographical references and index. Summary; Always at the centre of cultural change and excitement, the Irish writer George Moore enjoyed a sixty-year literary career during which he wrote prolifically, befriended artists and authors from Paris to London to Dublin, and rejected marriage though never the company of women. This book - the first full, documentary biography of Moore since 1936 - tells the remarkable story of a high-spirited man and his pathbreaking innovations as a writer. Adrian Frazier has mined letters, memoirs, society journals, writings not previously attributed to Moore, and other archives to reveal new information about Moore's early life, his ostensibly promiscuous bachelor days, and his complex career as an author. The book provides an engaging account of Moore's pursuit of his passions, from his early, failed attempt to become an artist in Paris in the 1870s through his long career as an author. Moore wrote plays, poetry, criticism, short stories, and sixteen novels, among them his best-known Esther Walters. His experiments in style ranged from the naturalistic A Mummer's Wife to the stream of consciousness prose of The Lake to the seamless, fluent narratives of his late manner - the comic Hail and Farewell and the epic The Brook Kerith. Frazier records the relationships between Moore and his well-known friends - Yeats, Joyce, Archer, Shaw, Frank Harris, Sickert, Whistler, and others - and with the many women in his life, including his greatest love, Lady Cunard. At the end of his life, Moore sought, without success, a biographer who would candidly tell the story of his life, loves, and art. Adrian Frazier has written that story.

"Karen Blixen, writing under the name Isak Dinesen, was a story teller of great originality, who had great imaginative vision, and followed the romantic belief that 'Life is to be understood on the analogy of art, in which everything, even the pain and the evil, is aesthetically necessary', and like Yeats, saw tragedy in the guise of an heroic gayety. She gives us the modern subject-matter, the modern historical and psychological view of the world, yet in her impersonal, objective, vividly dramatic tone she resembles a ballad-singer -- a story-teller of ancient days." from the jacket flap.

Shaun Ryder has lived a life of glorious highs and desolate lows.As lead singer of the Happy Mondays,he turned Manchester into Madchester,combining all the excesses of a true rock'n'roll star with music and lyrics that led impressario Tony Wilson to describe him as 'the greatest poet since Yeats'.The young scally who left school at fifteen without ever learning his alphabet had come a very long way indeed.Huge chart success and a Glastonbury headline slot followed,plus numerous arrests and world tours - then Shaun's drug addiction reached its height,Factory Records was brought to its knees and the Mondays split.                                      But was this the end for Shaun Ryder? Not by a long shot.Two years later he was back with new band Black Grape,and their groundbreaking debut album topped the charts in possibly the greatest comeback of all time.Even his continuing struggle with drugs did not stem the tide of critically acclaimed tracks and collaborations as he went on to prove his musical genius time and time again.                            And then there was the jungle. . . .                                                         Rock'n'roll legend,reality TV star,drug-dealer,poet,film  tar,heroin addict,son, brother,father,husband,foul-mouthed anthropologist and straight-talking survivor, Shaun Ryder has been a cultural icon and a 24-hour party person for a quarter of a century.Told in his own words,this is his story.                                                     Since April 2013 and again in March 2015,and in 2016 too,the UK Post Office has altered it's Pricing in Proportion template,altering it's prices,weight allowances, dimensions and lowered it's qualifying compensation rates too!So,please contact rpaxtonden@blueyonder.co.uk,for correct shipping/P+p quotes - particularly ALL overseas buyers - BEFORE ordering through the order page!, LONDON.BANTAM PRESS/TRANSWORLD PUBLISHERS,2011., Cassell, London, 1977.

Yeats, Volume III: Autobiographies is part of the fourteen-volume series overseen by eminent Yeats scholars Richard J. Finnerah and George Mills Harper. The series includes virtually all of the Nobel laureate's published work, with authoritative and explanatory notes.Autobiographies consists of six autobiographical works -- Reveries Over Childhood and Youth, The Trembling of the Veil, Dramatis Personae, Estrangement, The Death of Synge, and The Bounty of Sweden -- that William Butler Yeats published together in the mid-1930s to form a single, extraordinary memoir of the first fifty-eight years of his life, from his earliest memories of childhood to winning the Nobel Prize for Literature. This volume provides a vivid series of personal accounts of a wide range of figures, and it describes Yeats's work as poet and playwright, as a founder of Dublin's famed Abbey Theatre, his involvement with Irish nationalism, and his fascination with occultism and visions. This book is most compelling as Yeats's own account of the growth of his poetic imagination. Yeats thought that a poet leads a life of allegory, and that his works are comments upon it. Autobiographies enacts his ruling belief in the connections and coherence between the life that he led and the works that he wrote. It is a vision of personal history as art, and so it is the one truly essential companion to his poems and plays.Edited by William H. O'Donnell and Douglas N.
