Fao Irishswan 546: W. B. Yeats 15:59 - Jun 13 with 400 viewsLohengrin

Quick question for you, though if you don’t feel qualified to attempt an answer please don’t feel under any obligation: W. B Yeats. How is he regarded in the Ireland of 2018? Is he still widely read and taught/studied?

I’ve been dipping in and out of his writings quite a bit of late and I was just curious as to his current standing in his homeland?

Not really my area of expertise to be honest, Its 15 years since was in secondary school and we didn't study any of his stuff then. Kinda depends on the teacher and whats on the plans for the year. From a general public point of view, the way society is nowadays we're more concerned about tv, movie, sport and music stars than the past, which I myself am guilty off, sad I know. Maybe in other areas of the country people might have opinions of him. Hopefully someone else from Ireland can give you more insight than I can.

The centre will not hold.

Not with our midfield anyway

My wife hails from Donegal and sister in law lives in Sligo. I regularly pass his resting site......Yeats restaurant is top notch mind.

There is no real play on him there in regards of his work with the local people.

The Second Coming is probably, almost certainly, the most influential poem of the twentieth century. It seems a shame that the man himself seems somehow to have fallen between the cracks.

Edit - I should have said short poem as The Wasteland is likely the most famous, if least understood, poem of the twentieth century.
