The Cutting of an Agate
12mo, $1.50 "Mr. Yeats is probably the most important as well as the most widely known of the men concerned directly in the so-called Celtic renaissance. More than this, he stands among the few men to be reckoned with in modern poetry." — New York Herald.

The Green Helmet and Other Poems
Decorated cloth, 12mo, $1.25
The initial piece in this volume is a deliciously conceived heroic farce, quaint in humor and sprightly in action. It tells of the difficulty in which two simple Irish folk find themselves when they enter into an agreement with an apparition of the sea, who demands that they knock off his head and who maintains that after they have done that he will knock off theirs. There is a real meaning in the play which it will not take the thoughtful reader long to discover. Besides this there are a number of shorter poems, notably one in which Mr. Yeats answers the critics of "The Playboy of the Western World."

Lyrical and Dramatic Poems
In Two Volumes
Vol. I. Lyrical Poems, $2.00
Vol. II. Plays (Revised), $2.00
The two-volume edition of the Irish poet's works included everything he has done in verse up to the present time. The first volume contains his lyrics; the second includes all of his five dramas in verse; "The Countess Cathleen," "The Land of Heart's Desire," "The King's Threshold," "On Baile's Strand," and "The Shadowy Waters."

THE MACMILLAN COMPANY
Publishers 64-66 Fifth Avenue New York Escape and Fantasy
By GEORGE ROSTREVOR
Cloth, l2mo, $1.00
This is a book of poems written by a man who has a delicate fancy and art. Some of the verse is suggestive of the work of Ralph Hodgson, whose writings have made such a profound impression in this country and in England. All of it shows marked originalily and power.

Poems

Recently awarded the Edward de Polignac prize for poetry, Ralph Hodgson is already well known in this country. Those who have read, in the little yellow chap books of the "Flying Fame," "The Song of Honour," "Eve," "The Bull," and others will welcome their publication in this American edition.
"'Eve,' . . The most fascinating poem of our time,"
The Nation.

The New Day
By SCUDDER MIDDLETON
Author of "Streets and Faces"
Boards, 12mo, $1,00
Mr. Middleton'a earlier book, "Streets and Faces," was considered by the New York Post to be one of the four most interesting volumes of poetry published in America during 1917. "The New Day" will perhaps have a wider appeal to poetry lovers. Here are poems dealing with the present hour as well as many purely imaginative songs and lyrics. What the Chicago Tribune said of "Streets and Faces" applies perhaps equally to "The New Day": "Here is exquisite poetry. . . the angle of life is modern yet the poetry somehow makes you feel like "The Golden Treasury."

The Tree of Life
By JOHN GOULD FLETCHER
Cloth, l2mo. Preparing
This is a collection of poems setting forth a love experience. Mr. Fletcher is already favorably known, and this book will serve still further to advance his reputation and to strengthen his hold upon the lovers of distinguished work in the poetic field.
