War and Modernism Poems During the Earky 1900's - During the tumultuous early 1900s, many poems were written on the horrors both heard of and encountered first hand. Some poets, like William Butler Yeats, wrote about the horrors of rebellion they encountered; others, like Wilfred Owen, were part of the dreadful World War I and were urged by their memories to start writing (“Wilfred Owen”). Both were part of the modernist movement, of which Yeats is often regarded as one of the founders. Modernism was a movement that outstretched literature and poetry, yet provided a new amount of freedom for war poets, as it allowed them to express themselves in the modernist fashion of free forms and room for criticism on the modern world (Matterson)....   [tags: modernist movement,william, yeats, modernism]

Yeats' on Change and Stability, and How They Interconnect, Using When You Are Old, The Lake Isle of Innisfree, The Wild ... - ... This is a short poem. It is written as a man addressing his lost love, telling her that she will regret losing him when she grows old. The obvious change in this poem is appearance. He tells her that she won’t be beautiful forever, and when she’s not, to think of him and how much he loved her. This poem is written in the present tense, looking forward to what the future will hold. What Yeats does describe as staying the same is this woman’s soul. He calls it a pilgrim soul, and tells her that is the real reason he loved her; not for her beauty, but for her soul....   [tags: philosophical analysis] 1064 words

The poem deals with Yeats’ disenchantment with the modern age: blind to true beauty, unheroic, and unworthy of Maud Gonne's ancient nobility and heroism.

The Stolen Child by W.B. Yeats - The Stolen Child by W.B. Yeats      “The Stolen Child”, a poem by W.B. Yeats, can be analyzed on several levels. The poem is about a group of faeries that lure a child away from his home “to the waters and the wild”(chorus). On a more primary level the reader can see connections made between the faery world and freedom as well as a societal return to innocence. On a deeper and second level the reader can infer Yeats’ desire to see a unified Ireland of simpler times. The poem uses vivid imagery to establish both levels and leaves room for open interpretation especially with the contradictory last stanza....   [tags: Stolen Child Poem Yeats Essays] 804 words

But the golden bird of "Sailing to Byzantium" may make us feel that "pure mind," although compelling, is not sufficient explanation. Where did that singing bird come from. Yeats's creative eclecticism, blending the morning's conversation with philosophical abstractions, makes the notion of one and only one source for any image implausible: see Frank O'Connor's comments on the genesis of "Lapis Lazuli," for example (211-22)....   [tags: Yeats Sailing Essays]

Despite this turn in focus towards the world around him, Yeats retains his interest in symbolism, and one aspect of his change in style is internalization of the symbolic scheme that underlies his poetry....   [tags: Yeats Poetry Adam's Curse Essays] 1779 words
