All are informed by the two qualities which Yeats valued and which he retained into old age—passion and joy. He was equally firm in adhering to his self-image as an artist.

He was a Symbolist poet, using allusive imagery and symbolic structures throughout his career. Aware of the symbolic power latent in the imagery of a young state's currency, he sought a form that was "elegant, racy of the soil, and utterly unpolitical". Only four days after the wedding, his bride began what would be a lengthy experiment with the psychic phenomenon called automatic writing, in which her hand and pen presumably served as unconscious instruments for the spirit world to send information.

Inhe chaired a coinage committee charged with selecting a set of designs for the first currency of the Irish Free State.

Where My Books Go

When Yeats joined in the Irish nationalist cause, he did so partly from convictionbut mostly for love of Maud. Simplification was only the first of several major stylistic changes.

Where the wave of moonlight glosses The dim grey sands with light, Far off by furthest Rosses We foot it all the night, Weaving olden dances, Mingling hands and mingling glances Till the moon has taken flight; To and fro we leap And chase the frothy bubbles, While the world is full of troubles And is anxious in its sleep.

W. B. Yeats bibliography

Eleven plays of William Butler Yeats. book repeatedly urges caution and discretion and says the Irish ambassador in Paris should not be informed.

In imagery, Yeats's poetry became sparer and more powerful as he grew older. There he wrote poems, plays, novels, and short stories—all with Irish characters and scenes. He was also the poet who, while very much of his own day in Ireland, spoke best to the people of all countries.

Away with us he''s going, The solemn-eyed: He''ll hear no more the lowing Of the calves on the warm hillside Or the kettle on the hob Sing peace into his breast, Or see the brown mice bob Round and round the oatmeal-chest. This breaks the traditional unity between the poet, king and warrior common to Celtic and Viking myths such as Beowulf.

From then onward he reached and maintained the height of his achievement—a renewal of inspiration and a perfecting of technique that are almost without parallel in the history of English poetry. He contended that gyres were initiated by the divine impregnation of a mortal woman—first, the rape of Leda by Zeus; later, the immaculate conception of Mary.

There is no precedent in literary history for a poet who produces his greatest work between the ages of 50 and He would often visit and stay there as it was a central meeting place for people who supported the resurgence of Irish literature and cultural traditions.

This conviction has come to us through ancient philosophy and modern literature, and it seems to us a most sacrilegious thing to persuade two people who hate each other For the first time he had money, and he was able to repay not only his own debts but those of his father.

Sidnell, Cornell University Press, Authorities were worried about the fact that the much-loved poet's remains were thrown into a communal grave, causing embarrassment for both Ireland and France.
