Example text

19 But Yeats avails himself of the convenience that the Anglicized place name contains a common English word. How more compactly could the divided allegiance of the poet be expressed than in this necessity to bring into a different language a place name from his home country in order to express its freedom? The place name occupies the exact divide, the hyphen, between the two halves of the Anglo-Irish experience. The only remnant of Irish in the otherwise thoroughly English speech of the poem, the place name acts to connect the poem linguistically to its subject, but just by virtue of its difference, the name also advertises the distance of that subject.

288, 11. 32-36) The image of the nest recalls that in "Upon a House shaken by the Land Agitation," a poem published two years before the one in question. There, Yeats asks what good will come if Coole Park should be unable To breed the lidless eye that loves the sun? And the sweet laughing eagle thoughts that grow Where wings have memory of wings, and all That comes of the best knit to the best? (VP, p. 264, 11. 4-7) In these poems, the nest stands for a particular kind of historical accumulation.

All his life, Yeats attempted to subordinate race to history, to argue that "certain native traditions" are passed on from father to son and "mould the foreign settler after the national type in a few years" (UP, 2:202). Of course, he had to flout history itself to argue that the Anglo-Irish Ascendancy had been assimilated into the indigenous culture it invaded. And though most scholars would agree that the word Celtic has virtually no meaning as a racial designation, Yeats created an even greater ambiguity in attempting to define a Celticism that is unified and yet not exclusive, pure even though it results from a mixture of races.
