The Variorum Edition of Yeats’s Plays

  • Russell K. Alspach


In 1956, shortly after completing the manuscript of The Variorum Edition of the Poems of W. B. Yeats, I began working on a variorum edition of the plays of Yeats that I finished in the spring of 1964. The book is dedicated to the memory of Peter Allt with whom I had collaborated on the poetry-variorum from 1947 until his tragic death in 1954. My purpose in this paper is to discuss some of the major editorial and bibliographical problems encountered during the years of composition from 1956 to 1964.
