It starts to rain. Quick get inside. Thunder and lightning. Very, very frightening. Beace Beace my made up word.
Means your peace. Beace is as good as a honey jar And the honey is as yellow as a sunflower. Beace is good and bad. There is absolutely nothing about it to know. And absolutely no one that knows how to spell it. There was iginoligee in the desert. The book had iginoligee on the pages. Some people believe pollution is iginoligee. I see it as a loss of lives. All war left was iginoligee. Though Yeats was against violence as means to achieve Irish independence, he was shocked at the executions of the revolutionaries and understood their contribution to the greater national cause.
He wrote this poem to commemorate the martyrs of the Easter Rising. I write it out in a verse —. MacDonagh and MacBride.
And Connolly and Pearse. Now and in time to be,. Wherever green is worn,. Are changed, changed utterly:. A terrible beauty is born. The speaker of the poem lives in a country of the young which neglect the old.
FLY OVER POEM W/ BILLY COLLINS ENDING ||| from Paper Darts
Sailing to Byzantium uses a journey to Byzantium as a metaphor for a spiritual journey. It is considered one of the best works of Yeats and it is the most famous poem of his greatest poetry collection, The Tower. An aged man is but a paltry thing,. A tattered coat upon a stick, unless. Soul clap its hands and sing, and louder sing. For every tatter in its mortal dress,.
Nor is there singing school but studying. Monuments of its own magnificence;. And therefore I have sailed the seas and come. To the holy city of Byzantium. In this short poem of three stanzas of four lines , the speaker, who is residing in an urban city, yearns to return to the peace and serenity of Innisfree. The poem is notable as being a famous work of the Irish Literary Revival movement which aimed to create distinct art and literature that was Irish in origin rather than one that adhered to the standards set by the English.
Lake Isle of Innisfree was critically acclaimed when it was published.
It remains one of the best known poems of Yeats with multiple references to it being made in popular culture over the years. I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,. And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made;. Nine bean rows will I have there, a hive for the honey bee,. And live alone in the bee-loud glade. And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,. Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;. I will arise and go now, for always night and day.

I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;. While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,. In it Yeats uses Christian imagery regarding the Apocalypse and Second Coming to describe the atmosphere of post-war Europe. The Second Coming is regarded as one of the most important works of Modernist poetry. It is one of the most influential poetic works of the 20th century and the most famous poem by William Butler Yeats.
The darkness drops again; but now I know. That twenty centuries of stony sleep. Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,. And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,. Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

For me, Yeats is king. Not only was he an Irish patriot, but he also stage-managed a significant theatre in its day. Finally, he was a mystic, replacing the dry Christianity of his youth with a religious system of his own making. We may not be able to explain the crises or tragedies of our lives— and our life suffers from them— but we can understand them from a higher perspective. The poem is unique in the way it triumphs over the traditional war themes by having a light nursery rhyme quality about it that makes it haunting and memorisable.

The poem has a subtle seasaw motion that is both soothing and sleep inducing. Yeats strips Robert of his Britishness by detailing his indifference to the patriotic reasons why British men went to their sacrificial deaths and in so doing not only proves his Irish authenticity but his power of free will. Yeats has surprised me by his delicate handling of loss in this poem and has whetted my appetite to reread more of his fine work.

Yet many of these poems are not in the individual confessional vein for which Kaur is known and celebrated. While Kaur didn't answer multiple requests for comment, the FAQ section of her website indicates that she is interested less in sharing her own experiences, despite the claims of her fans, and more in what she portrays as the collective nature of sexual trauma in her community, writing:. Referring to colonial violence, she says :.
Kaur thus intends for her poetry to do two things at once: milk and honey functions both as an extremely individual and thus subjective work, and as a manifesto that attempts to redress the perceived wrongs done to the South Asian female collective. Kaur indeed seems to note little difference between her educated, Western, Indian-Canadian self and her ancestors, or even modern South Asian women of a similar age in rural Punjab. While more female South Asian voices are indeed needed in mainstream culture and media, there is something deeply uncomfortable about the self-appointed spokesperson of South Asian womanhood being a privileged young woman from the West who unproblematically claims the experience of the colonized subject as her own, and profits from her invocation of generational trauma.
For example: neither is any more "authentically" South Asian. But it is disingenuous to collect a variety of traumatic narratives and present them to the West as a kind of feminist ethnography under the mantle of confession, while only vaguely acknowledging those whose stories inspired the poetry. Her vision of herself as an icon of diversity against hostile gatekeepers of literary prestige is evident. In interviews, she emphasizes the importance of being a brown woman in traditionally white spaces, whether it be expensive restaurants or bestseller lists , despite being warned about being barred from literary circles if she self-published her collection.
Kaur meticulously works to present a different face to each market: On her website , she states that she writes in exclusively lowercase using only periods to pay homage to her mother tongue, Punjabi. It is a watered-down version of her explanation on her website , and one designed specifically with a white audience in mind.
A love of symmetry is, after all, easier to identify with than a loyalty to a specific South Asian script. The few poems that specifically address race are positioned facing each other, a brief interlude in a collection that is otherwise devoid of racial politics, and once again addresses a white, Western audience in their appeal for recognition of South Asian beauty and resilience. Most crucially, her individual pieces that do not deal with race, but rather treat more general topics, no longer read as inherently informed by race simply through their inclusion in a collection that claims to speak to issues of diversity.
