Summary
Around 1910, William Butler Yeats discarded the Pre-Raphaelite elements and certain Celtic and esoteric influences of his earlier poetry, transitioning to a tighter and harder verse line, a more sparse and resonant imagery, and a new directness. This program focuses on six of Yeats's poems from his mature years: "No Second Troy," "September 1913," "The Fisherman," "Sailing to Byzantium," "Among School Children," and "The Circus Animals' Desertion." Each segment consists of a dramatized reading intercut with interpretive commentary, followed by an uninterrupted replay of the reading.
