    Yeats exhibition

    There is an amazing new exhibition on WB Yeats in the National Library of Ireland featuring many manuscripts of important poems. The exhibition makes use of great multimedia, some of which is supposed to go online although they couldn't tell me when exactly. Worth keeping an eye on their webpage http://www.nli.ie/yeats

    Oh I would love to go to this. I understand that Yeats was a terrible speller. If anyone goes, can they check to see the spelling in the actual manuscripts.

    Yeah. It is even on one of the school reports on display "Terrible in spelling" or something like that. There are miss spellings in many of the manuscripts too: I noticed "sleap" for "sleep" and "preyer" for "prayer". I saw a book recently saying he was dyslexic
