    Abstract:
    The article presents a little known episode of the life of the great Irish poet William Butler Yeats (1867-1939) - his involvement in politics during the early years of the Irish independence. The author describes Yeats' participation in the proceedings of the parliamentary Coinage Committee as well as other social and political activities the poet undertook between 1922 and 1928 as a member of the Irish Seanad. Yeats' involvement is presented here as an indirect outcome of his artistic education and fascination with the work and life of William Morris (1834-1896), English poet, literary critic, architect, and interior designer. It is also discussed as a model of social involvement of an artist as well as a part of wider European trend presented briefly in the article on the basis of example taken from Polish literary history.
