W.B Yeats

Yesterday was the death anniversary of W.B Yeats,the great Irish poet.He was an important figure of the Twentieth Century English Literature.His early poetry was influenced by Irish legends and occultism.Later he turned to realism but his poetry remains a veritable mix of the physical and the spiritual.His poem'The Second Coming' written in 1919 describes the situation in war-torn Europe. The poem is an all time classic and holds good even today .
Yeats was awarded Nobel Prize for Literature in 1923.
Our humble tributes to the great poet !
