In ‘A Fanatic Heart’, Bob Geldof, of the Boomtown Rats, examines the life and works of W.B. Yeats. Geldof, a self-confessed devotee of the Nobel Prize winning poet traces W.B. Yeats’ life from early childhood trips to the mystical landscapes of Rosses Point in Sligo, influencing and awakening his love for the magical, through his international fame as Poet Laureate and Nobel Prize winner, to his role as Senator for the new Irish Free State.
