One volume containing the previously published Reveries Over Childhood and Youth. The Trembling of the Veil and Dramatis Persona. He tells of a boyhood in Ireland, listening to the legends and folk tales of the peasants, of his school days and the contacts which molded him, of his experiences in London, Dublin, Paris, of the Irish National Theatre and the politics of his early years. He writes of men and women he has known. And he reveals himself, boy, youth and poet.
