William Bulter Yeats was born June 16, 1865, in a house called "Georgeville," in Sandymount, Dublin, Ireland. His father, John Butler Yeats, was a first rate Anglo-Irish painter, philosopher, critic and scholar. His mother, however, was introspective and preferred the quiet life of rural Ireland to the intellectual exchange that captivated her husband. In the poetry of W. B. Yeats, there are manifestations of both his mother's and his father's influence. The Yeats family shuffled back and forth between Dublin, London, and Sligo, always short of money but rich in culture, learning and verve.
