The Tables Of The Law And The Adoration Of The Magi

William Butler Yeats

The Tables of the Law and the Adoration of the Magi is a book by the renowned Irish poet and playwright, William Butler Yeats. The book is a collection of two plays, both of which explore themes of religion, spirituality, and the search for meaning in life.The first play, The Tables of the Law, is a retelling of the biblical story of Moses and the Ten Commandments. In this play, Yeats explores the idea of divine law and the consequences of breaking it. The play is set in ancient Egypt and follows the story of Moses as he receives the tablets of the law from God and tries to persuade the Pharaoh to free the Israelites from slavery.The second play, The Adoration of the Magi, is a modern retelling of the story of the three wise men who visit the baby Jesus in Bethlehem. In this play, Yeats explores the idea of faith and the search for spiritual enlightenment. The play is set in modern times and follows the story of a group of travelers who come together to search for the true meaning of Christmas.Overall, The Tables of the Law and the Adoration of the Magi is a thought-provoking and insightful book that explores some of the most fundamental questions of human existence.
