echo Yeats described himself as a man who was naturally religious but whose Christian belief had been overturned by the scientific rationalism of the nineteenth century. Oxford Illustrated history of English Literature, 383

He said he, made a new religion, almost an infallible church of poetic tradition. Norton Anthology, 2019 The most fundamental of these assumptions, which the Neoplatonists shared with the majority of intellectuals of the ancient

worldis that mindful consciousness (nous, often translated as thought, intelligence, or intellect) is in an important sense ontologically prior to the physical realm typically taken for ultimate reality (Mind over Matter). Neoplatonic philosophy is a strict form of principle-monism that strives to understand everything on the basis of a single

cause that they considered divine, and indiscriminately referred to as the First, the One, or the Good. --Stanford encyclopedia of philosophy Resolutely Irish, he imaginatively reclaims a land colonized by the British; imposes Irish rhythms, images, genres, and syntax on English-language poetry; and revives

native myths, place-names, and consciousness. Yet he is also cosmopolitan, insisting on the transnationalism of the collective storehouse of images he calls Spiritus Mundi or Anima Mundi, Norton, 2020

We make out of the quarrel with others, rhetoric, but of the quarrel with ourselves, poetry. Yeats* *Norton, 2021

W.B. Yeatss output of poetry is rich, diverse, variable and paradoxical. Certain themes, locations and attitudes recur throughout them, giving identity to the sequence. But, from the outset, that preoccupation with paradox means that there is plenty of variety and even unpredictability; he can

contradict in one poem what he apparently affirms in another. Cedric Watts, Wordsworth Poetry Library, x Theosophical society: the world is a conflict of opposites, the soul undergoes a cycle of reincarnation and each soul is part of

a universal soul or great mind (Intro: Wordsworth Poetry Library) vi At the center of the symbolic system were the interpenetrating cones, or gyres, that

represented the movement through major cycles of history and across antitheses of human personalityin poems of the 1920s and 1930s, winding stairs, spinning tops, gyres, spirals of all kinds, are important symbols, serving as a means of resolving some of the contraries that had arrested him from the beginningparadoxes of time and eternity, change and continuity, spirit and body, life and art. Norton, 2021

The end of an age, which always receives the revelation of the character of the next age, is represented by the coming of one gyre

to its place of greatest expansion and of the other to that of its greatest contraction. Yeats In one of his last letters he wrote: When I try to

put all into a phrase I say, Man can embody truth but he cannot know it.The abstract is not life and everywhere draws out its contradictions. You can refute Hegel but not the Saint or the Song of Sixpence. Norton, 2022
