      "Unity of Culture," a unity stemming from a universally accepted mythology, is precisely what, in Yeats's view, the modern world lacks. Symbolism he saw as the language of mythology. For years Yeats was occupied with the attempt to regain, in Ireland, that "Unity of Culture" which would make the language of symbolism intelligible.   Irish poet, dramatist, and prose writer, William Butler (W.B.) Yeats (), is considered to this day as one of the greatest English-language poets of the 20th century. He received the Nobel Prize for Literature in Singer, scholar, stage director, producer, lecturer, teacher and cultural activist, James Flannery is the Winship Professor of Arts and Humanities .

In Yeats spent some months at Stone Cottage, Sussex, with the American poet Ezra Pound acting as his secretary.

Even during the early years of his career, he thought that art should arise spontaneously out of society as the expression of soul, just has it had in the Renaissance, in the fifth century B.C., Cited by: 3.

Includes a comprehensive and annotated selection of Yeats's major writings: poems from Crossways through Last Poems including five poems in both early and revised versions; the plays Cathleen ni Houlihan, On Baile's Strand, At the Hawk's Well, and Purgatory; prose fiction and folklore from The Celtic Twilight, The Secret Rose, and Stories of Red Hanrahan; 5/5(1).

This book focuses on W. Yeats’s critical writings, an aspect of his oeuvre which has been given limited treatment so far. It traces his critical work from his earliest articles, through to his occult treatises, and all the way to his last pamphlets, in which he sought to delineate the idea of a literary culture: a community of people willing to credit poetry with the central role in.

William Butler Yeats is widely considered to be one of the greatest poets of the 20th century. He belonged to the Protestant, Anglo-Irish minority that had controlled the economic, political, social, and cultural life of Ireland since at least the end of the 17th century.

Most members of this minority considered themselves English people who happened to have been born in Ireland, but Yeats. Yeats’s own deeply felt Anglo-Irish dichotomies resulted in his impulse to “remake” his self-image. Influenced by William Blake, Yeats claimed he must create his own religious system or be enslaved by another.

Embracing the “ancient fathers,” he began a life-long dialogue of self and soul to the ultimate goal, “unity of being.”. 'Unity in diversity' is used as an expression of harmony and unity between dissimilar individuals or groups. It is a concept of "unity without uniformity and diversity without fragmentation" that shifts focus from unity based on a mere tolerance of physical, cultural, linguistic, social, religious, political, ideological and/or psychological differences towards a more complex unity based on.

A pillar of both the Irish and British literary establishments, in his later years Yeats served as an Irish Senator for two terms. He was a driving force behind the Irish Literary Revival, and along with Lady Gregory and Edward Martyn founded the Abbey Theatre, serving as its chief William Butler Yeats was an Irish poet and dramatist, and one 4/5.

According to Fantaccini, Yeats’s use of Dante was governed by his search for unity in a fragmented modern world. His famous concepts of Unity of Being and Unity of Culture are directly related to his reading of medieval and Renaissance Italian literature, of which Dante is the ‘figura centrale’ (20).

This paper addresses William Butler Yeats’s dramatisation of his life-long interest in the invisible realm and an ideal Irish aristocracy in his five Cuchulain plays. I wish to illustrate how Yeats expresses his increasing ambiguities over the cultural and political capacities of the Anglo-Irish Protestant Ascendancy through the changes of the Irish warrior-hero Cuchulain’s body and the Author: Zsuzsanna Balázs.

Culture was for Haeckel a much stronger method of studying humans than the physical anthropology propounded by his former teacher Virchow. A vital aspect of Haeckel’s programme of a "unity of culture" was his attempt to provide a bridge between biological science and art, the result of which was the visually dazzling Kunstformen der Natur.
