William Butler Yeats' "The Second Coming" is a classic poem, perfect for teaching allusion. This set of questions will help students analyze the poem at depth, focusing their analysis on the interactions between figurative language, form, and allusion. This works well alone, as part of a larger poetry unit, or to accompany study of Chinua Achebe's Things Fall Apart.
