  • Analysis Of Adam's Curse By W. B. Yeats

    Through Adam’s Curse, Yeats not only comments on the movement away from true love through Ireland as a whole, but also through his own experience with ‘new love’ himself. From the first stanza, he introduces the reader to a “beautiful mild woman” (Line 2). He is referencing Maud Gonne in this lines, who he has recently lost all hope of being with, but is clearly still passionate about, for he describes her as ‘beautiful’ and ‘mild’. He “talk[s] of poetry” (Line 3) in order to cope with this loss, which is discussed in the preceding paragraph as being a method for poets to evoke feelings of true love. However, in Ireland, it is no longer the same, for his “stitching and unstitching has been naught” (Line 6). Therefore, Yeat’s coping method reveals his emotional despondency as a result of being traded by Maud Gonne as a result of Ireland’s ‘new love’, and his inability to successfully cope through poetry expounds the loss of true love, and the presence of the distorted ‘new love’ in Ireland. He references Maud Gonne in the same manner later in his poem, describing…

  • Compare September 1913 And Elemer 1916

    not able to marry his love, he probably thought he would wait and at the right moment marry Iseult Gonne. When Yeats starts his poem ‘What need you, being come to sense,’ sounds more like he does not need Maud Gonne anymore. No more waiting and now he has seen her daughter it would make better sense to marry her daughter for the insult Maud Gonne had poured onto him when she rejected him. The line which was repeated mostly ‘Romantic Ireland’s dead and gone,’ (Yeats, 1913) portrays more like the…

  • Is Yeats A Great Poet Analysis

    desire for Innisfree is so strong that he claims to hear it in the deep heart's core. This is a metaphor that ties in with the image of Yeats ear listening to nature that is repeated five times throughout the poem (bee-loud... cricket sings... linnets wings... water lapping).

    My poetry anthology is a collection of poems that I thoroughly enjoy and relate too. There is no set theme in my poetry anthology. Despite having no set theme, love is a frequent theme in my poetry anthology. Love is a frequent theme because I am a clichéd hopeless romantic who simply loves anything to do with love. Some of the greatest poems come from those who are in love, take W.B Yeats for example who writes of his unrequited love for Maud Gonne. There's a quote that says all lovers are…
