I'm not sure if this question belongs here, but I have a question about W.B. Yeats. Okay, so I was talking to my Romantic lit teacher today, and he basically said that Yeats WAS NOT a humanist and was always looking for a way for the flesh of the individual to be eternalized into something transcendental. I am not sure if I agree with this as poems like Sailing to Byzantium suggest that there is an artificiality gained with immortality. I am thinking about arguing for some of his humanist qualities in my paper, what does everyone think?
