Irish poet William Butler Yeats (1865-1939) was the first Irish poet to be awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1923. Most critics believe Yeats' best works, however, were completed after he received the Nobel Prize, and include "The Tower," which was published in 1928, and "The Winding Stair and Other Poems" released the following year. Another poet on Yeats' continent probably started English romantic literature
