Yeats Paperblanks

A Patriotic Journal Commemorating WB Yeats

Yeats Paperblanks

With so many events taking place around the country for the 1916 centennial anniversary, the team at Paperblanks have chosen to’mark both the Easter Rising and the life of one of Ireland’s greatest and most beloved writers in one fell swoop.

Adorned with the handwriting of WB Yeats and featuring his poem “Easter, 1916”, this distressed?emerald journal is a powerful expression of the artist coming to terms with the divisive?conflict.

Scrawled in stark black across the front, Yeats’ creative labour is kept intact with verses stricken out and reworked, the final lines representing a striking and?personal embodiment of Yeats’ response to one of the most momentous days Ireland would ever witness:

And what if excess of love
Bewildered them till they died?
I write it out in a verse ?
MacDonagh and MacBride
And Connolly and Pearse
Now and in time to be,
Wherever green is worn,
Are changed, changed utterly:
A terrible beauty is born.

The W.B. Yeats Journal is available while stocks last at Paperblanks’?online store.
