Description - "The Dreaming of the Bones" and "Calvary" by W. B. Yeats

The second and last of a series of four adaptations from the Japanese Noh theater, The Dreaming of the Bones and Calvary were paired in their first printing together in "Four Plays for Dancers." In writing these one-act plays, Yeats worked through for himself the psychology of betrayal and its consequences for humanity. This book reproduces the complete set of extant manuscripts that preceded publication of both plays. In addition to a perceptive introductory essay, the book includes several appendixes of Yeats's notes and commentaries on the plays from their preparation in 1921 onward.
