The Hungarian Yeats Society

is a non-profit organisation founded in January 2014, aiming to serve the needs of those interested in W.B. Yeats’s works, Irish literature and culture. Through our versatile activities we try to collect and connect – besides helping and organising Yeats-related academic research we create a community that shares the love for poetry, drama and music.

The fundamental objectives of the Hungarian Yeats Society are the following:

  • to make Yeats accessible for Hungarian audiences by collecting, editing and organising translated primary and secondary material
    • creating our own small collection of Yeats-related texts and other writings of Irish interest
    • setting up a virtual database for Yeats’s works and secondary material
  • to open new forums (performances, readings, academic conferences, music events, workshops and other activities) to discuss and enjoy Yeats in Hungary
    • to give special attention to Yeatsian drama:
      translate and promote Yeats’s plays
  • to connect ourselves to the network of Yeatsians all over the world both culturally and academically as active members of the International Yeats Society
  • to maintain and develop ongoing links with The Seaty Society of Sligo and its fellow organisations; The Yeats Society of Japan, The Yeats Society of Korea, and The W. B. Yeats Society of New York
