Lilly Library Manuscript Collections


The Jackson, S.B. mss., 1922-1924, consist of letters from poet William Butler Yeats, 1865-1939, to Schuyler B. Jackson, then at Boars Hill, Oxford. The first items are short and of slight content, usually beginning with an apology for not answering Jackson's letter sooner. The last item, written February 28, 1924, is three typed pages, however, in which Yeats comments on his life "since my Nobel Prize honour," and goes on to respond in detail to an essay Jackson had apparently written on Yeats' work and thought.
