|Summary:|| W.B. Yeats searched throughout his life for a system of spiritual truth. From 1917 he and his wife did automatic writing, W.B. asking questions and George writing down answers from beyond their conscious selves. Harper thoroughly analyses this script, touching on a number of related topics including feminist issues of collaborative authorship. - ;Georgie Hyde Lees, who married W.B. Yeats in the autumn of 1917, has for many years occupied a secondary or even marginal position in most studies of her famous husband. She has been depicted as a poor choice for romantic partner, political comrade.
