    Yeats, a towering intellect was elected a Senator to the Irish Senate (Seanad Eireann) and served two terms from 1922-1928. Yeats opposed divorce which he said would ruin the Anglo-Irish thoroughly. Yeats composed his speeches and poetry in his summer home, Thoor Ballylee, near Gort Co Galway, whilst marching up and down on the wooden first floor of his beloved tower, thereby providing cadence to his clear diction, which he purchased in 1919 and then left in 1932. The mischievous manner in which he dissolved any opposition to his Senate speeches is recorded in this book. Yeats Irish animal coinage; the Lane paintings shared between Dublin and London; his copyright protection of the controversial James Joyce Ulysses book has stood the test of time. Yeats, the most quoted poet in the English language endures in 'no country for old men, to the waters and the wild, a terrible beauty is born usw.
