Musician and advocate Bob Geldof examines the life and work of one of the 20th century’s greatest poets, William Butler Yeats. A Fanatic Heart is the extraordinary story of revolution, nation-birth, mythology and disillusion and how one poetic genius dreamed and sang an entire country into being from the ravages of poverty and famine and into the raw dawn of a modern state.

Written by Geldof and biographer Roy Foster, this incisive and moving documentary features readings by celebrity contributors Sting, Noel Gallagher, Elvis Costello, Edna O'Brien, Bono, Van Morrison, Shane MacGowan, Olivia O'Leary, Liam Neeson, Stephen Fry, Dominic West, Richard E. Grant, Bill Nighy, Anne Enright, Colin Farrell, Ardal O'Hanlon and many others.

EXTRAS:

  • Over two hours of additional commentaries and readings by dozens of celebrities
  • Two new songs based on Yeats’ poems by:
  • Bono (Mad as the Mist and Snow) and
  • Elvis Costello (A Drunken Man’s Praise of Sobriety)
  • Yeats Remembered soundtrack by Pete Briquette [30 mins]
  • 73 poetry readings and 23 discussion pieces
