The Yeats Sisters
A Biography of Susan and Elizabeth YeatsBook - 1996 | First edition
In his autobiography and letters the Irish poet W.B. Yeats gives the impression that he had one rather shadowy sister on the fringes of his life. In reality the poet was for long periods largely dependent on his two sisters, Susan (Lily) and Elizabeth (Lolly). The family home in which he lived was for many years sustained only by the earnings of Lily, who worked as an embroiderer for May Morris, and Lolly, who taught in a kindergarten and gave lessons in painting.
