W. B. Yeats

inisfrebokWe’ve already encountered Yeats’s poem ‘The Second Coming’ at the beginning of this course, but next week, we will be looking at Yeats’s career in more detail. If you missed class today, you can pick up the handout from my office. The poems we’ll focus on particularly next Tuesday will be ‘The Lake Isle of Innisfree‘ (one of Yeats’s early poems), ‘A Coat’ (which is contemporaneous with early Modernist experiments such as those of the Imagists) and ‘Crazy Jane Talks with the Bishop‘ and ‘The Circus Animals’ Desertion‘ (two of Yeats’s late poems).
