NOTES:
A Nobel Laureate (1923 – Literature), W. B. Yeats was an important force not only in the Irish Renaissance in Literature of the 20th Century, but an important writer throughout the English-speaking world.  Involved also in Ireland's tense political scene, he served in the Irish Senate for two terms late in his life.  As a poet, he moved smoothly and brilliantly with the “new-fangled” free-verse that was born in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, while maintaining artistic excellence in traditional poetry forms.

reading of Yeats' A Drinking Song
Wine comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
I look at you, and I sigh.


from Responsibilities and Other Poems (1917)
