A Nobel Prize winning Irish dramatist and author, one of the founders of the Irish Literary Revival, William Butler Yeats is considered one of the twentieth century's key English language poets. A Symbolist poet, he had published during his life several volumes of plays and poetry, which are characterized dreamlike atmosphere, folk motifs and symbols.
“Mosada: A dramatic poem” is a play in three screens, first published in 1886. The action is set in a fictional kingdom. The main protagonists are Mosada, a "moorish girl," her friend the hunchback child Cola, a Christian monk and a few nameless inquisitors.
We are glad to present you the play, written by the recognized master of playwriting, who, according with T.S. Eliot’s opinion, was one of the few whose history is the history of their own time, who are a part of the consciousness of an age which cannot be understood without them. Enjoy the reading!
