    This article made my head hurt. I guess it surpasses my intelligence, though I have read Yeats. I think the author is like an art critique. They live off of explaining what does not have an explanation. The best writing bubbles up from the guts of personal experience. The worst writing is like this pretentious article. As Carl Sagan said, “I could be wrong”.

    I painted with too broad a brush in my last comment. I personally prefer Keats, the romantic, to Yeats the modernist. Keats believed that writing should come natural, and Yeats thought it should be constructed. Yeats was not a fan of Keats. I am not a fan of Yeats. His career was much longer than Keats was and he produced much more work. There are many who believe that had Keats lived longer, his works would have been unsurpassed. I am one of those people. I suppose that my own personal bias and romantic bent, makes me a hypocrite in criticizing the author of the article. Apologies.

Watchman, what of the night?
