William Butler Yeats is recognised as one of the greatest poets of the English language. His influence on subsequent poets has guaranteed W. B. Yeats an honoured place in the canon of English literature. Yeats's poetry, prose and drama have always been associated closely with Sligo. Through the creative space of the Yeats Memorial Building, the Yeats Society has sought to serve the needs of those interested in Yeats's poetry through the Yeats Summer School, Art Gallery, Yeats Poetry Circle, Poets Parlour, Reference library and Lily's and Lolly's cafe.
