In Memory of W.B. Yeats
by W.H. Auden
Analysis: Steaminess Rating
Exactly how steamy is this poem?
C'mon, folks, have some respect for the dead! OK, Yeats did indeed have a pretty intense love life, and we do hear about the parishes of pretty women that surround him. But that's another story for another time, friends. (Read up on it in "No Second Troy.")
