    W. B. Yeats’s readers have long wondered whether he could possibly believe in what is strangest in his work. When George Russell (AE) first reviewed Yeats’s essay introducing A Vision, he highlighted the collaboration between the dreaming consciousness of his wife and his own, with possibly other entities not of this plane of being. The poet speaks of them as if he believed they were. Yeats felt that he had gone beyond the Adamic Whitman by asserting the public responsibility of the artist. At the same time, the public that interested Yeats was different from that to which the English romantics responded. Like the self, Yeats's public world was created by the artist, not given to him.

His work harks back to the old, pre-Christian mythology of Ireland. To the Tuatha De Danann and the Book of Invasions. To the hero, Cu Chulainn and his epic, The Tain. Yeats recognised what a treasure trove of imagination the myths are and how they could provide a framework with which to express his own unique vision of Ireland.

Yeats (–) on the poetry and drama of Robinson Jeffers (–), Deborah Fleming examines similarities in imagery, landscape, belief in eternal recurrence, use of myth, distrust of rationalism, and dedication to tradition.

"The Higher Criticism of Yeats, when it is more fully developed, will have to engage the radical issue of his subjectivity, particularly as it is expressed in his myth of the antithetical man."

One of the greatest poets of the 20th century and a recipient of the Nobel Prize, William Butler Yeats spent his early childhood in Dublin and Sligo before moving with his parents to London.

His first volumes of poetry, influenced by the symbolism of William Blake and Irish folklore and myth, are more romantic and dreamlike than his later work.Yeats spoke about that at the event saying the origin of that poem, was an apparition a year-old man had observed of “a beautiful girl who at once vanished into the ground.
