    • POEM: An Irish Airman Forsees His Death by William Butler Yeats (11/9/2007 10:17:00 AM)

      I find this typically Yeats...........he conveys the thoughts of the young airman,
      who finds himself embroiled in the carnage of the Western Front.Despite the
      almost inevitiability of his own death, he conciously will continue his ariel war
      against an'enemy ' he neither knows nor loathes.A war conducted against other
      young men, not unlike himself......the best their country has to offer, also.
      The melancholy and poignancy which Yeats creates is particularly emotive.
      in this week of rememberance.The terrible waste and futility of war, was never
      bettered, even by the acknowledged ww1 poets, at their most convincing.
      Yeats is a particlar favourite of mine.
