Sub Topics: Aesthetics and Politics Mixed in W. B. Yeats’s Poetry
Key Words: W. B. Yeats, Keats, Pre-Raphaelites, poetic collections, English literature, poetry, symbol
The canvas of Yeats’ Muse is admittedly vast, combining within itself two apparently irreconcilable pigments. With a beginning which is reminiscent of Keats and the Pre-Raphaelites, Yeats moved forward with mighty strides towards the mature phase of the production of illuminating poetic collections which constitute sortie at the rare marvels in English literature. In between this early and the mature stage here is another period—that of transition which is equally reductive of scintillating poetry full of coruscating symbols.
