In Ireland, Yeats is rightly regarded as the poet laureate of the new nation. In Britain he is regarded as a romantic, Irish dreamer. But the reality of his life and work after Ireland had won independence was a good deal earthier, and a good deal more interesting. This is a documentary by award-winning director Maurice Sweeney which concentrates on the later work of the great poet and the themes that inspired him as an ageing man. In looking at Yeats' later life and work, the film reveals a very different Yeats to the poet we learnt about in school. The film also highlights the apparent mystery that surrounds the whereabouts of his final burial place. Yeats died in France at the start of World War II and his 'remains' were not repatriated for many years. Many historians and critics believe that the body that came home to the strains of The Marseillaise and A Nation Once Again was not that of our beloved poet, but that of an Englishman called Alf. The film examines the facts surrounding Yeats' humble original burial and subsequent much-trumpeted repatriation to Ireland - the final, ironic chapter in a life replete with contradiction and irony. The documentary uncovers not only the brilliant and challenging poetry that never made it into Soundings, but a life - and death - less ordinary. The film contains never before seen footage of Yeats' repatriation to Ireland in 1948, captured by a local film enthusiast and tucked away in the bowels of the Irish Film Archive until now.
