Notes

First edition, signed limited issue, number 844 of 1,000 subscribers copies signed by the author and printed on handmade paper. The Trembling of the Veil was the second of Yeats's seven autobiographical works, and was described by Arthur Symons as "an absolute masterpiece: far & away the best thing Yeats has ever done" (Ross, p. 559). The following year, Yeats was awarded the Nobel prize for literature. Yeats's memoirs were collected in 1935 as The Autobiography of William Butler Yeats and consisted of Reveries over Childhood and Youth (1914), The Trembling of the Veil (1922), his Nobel Prize lecture, "The Irish Dramatic Movement" (1923), The Bounty of Sweden (1925), Estrangement (1926), The Death of Synge (1928), and Dramatis Personae, 1896-1902 (1935).
