Up to 80,000 people visit Ireland's Drumcliffe graveyard each year to pay their respects to poet William Butler Yeats.

But, according to Literary Hub, Yeats is most likely not buried there.

Yes, there's a headstone bearing his birth date, death date, and the epitaph he wrote for himself — but thanks to World War II, his body probably didn't make it back to Ireland.

Lit Hub explains the long story behind how Yeats's body has essentially gone missing.
