Through performances of some of Yeats' most iconic poems by leading Irish and British cultural figures, Geldof reveals how Yeats and others built the scaffolding of a new independent Ireland decades before the Rising - but how Yeats' vision for a modern, pluralist, inclusive Ireland was pushed aside by the narrow-minded Catholic ÃƒÂ©lite of the new Free State: the "Banana Republic" that Geldof in turn rebelled against half a century later. A Fanatic Heart is a captivating tale of mythology, nation-building, insurgency and disillusion - and how one man dreamed an entire country out of the ravages of famine and into a new dawn.
