William Butler Yeats
William Butler Yeats (1865-1939) was a poet and leader of the Irish Literary Revival. He was interested in hermeticism, spiritualism, and Rosicrucianism, and was heavily involved in the Dublin Theosophical Lodge.
The oriental turn to his poetry and that of Æ (George William Russell) was credited to their acquaintance with Mohini M. Chatterji.
