William Yeats - Author
1865-1939
Irish
When you are old and gray and full of sleep, and nodding by the fire, take down this book
and slowly read, and dream of the soft look your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep.

W.B. Yeats

W(illiam) B(utler) Yeats (1865-1939) was an Irish poet, and winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1923. He is widely regarded as the best poet to write in English during the twentieth century, and was the driving force behind the Irish literary revival.
