While working through my required reads, I came across the name of a great poet: William Butler Yeats. I decided to pick up a collection of his poems.
While I tend to read and enjoy most things, I found that Yeats was very much like everything of his day. It also seemed to make no sense. While there are writers who purposefully do this, Yeats just seemed to naturally be doing it. I think I find that other poets, such as Lewis Carroll and Robert Frost, hold my attention more. They’re more lyrical and their poems tend to be funnier.
What is your favorite poet?
