Discuss on "The Wild Swans at Coole" by W. B.Yeats
« on: October 10, 2010, 11:08:01 AM »
“The Wild Swans at Coole” is a wonderful poem written by Irish poet William Butler Yeats as known as W.B.Yeats. The poem was published in1919. In this poem has a regular stanza form: five and six line, first and third lines are tetrameter, second and fourth lines are trimester and fifth line is pentameter. The rhyme scheme in each stanza is ABCBDD. It is a very pleasing poem in the twenty century English literature.
 In the poem ‘The Wild Swans at Coole’ William Butler Yeats uses many reverberation techniques and literary plans in order to communicate the intention of the poem such devices are rhyme, metaphor, repetition, alliteration and personification. The Wild Swans at Coole” belong to the early romantic ‘period. ‘Coole’ refers to the ‘Coole Park’ at the place in Ireland where W.B.Yeats grew up. Here, Swan is a symbol of love, beauty, race and serenity.
I think how much beauty and life there is in the poet's life. The swans might also signify a place Yeats might have observed them in Ireland. Yeats was away from Ireland a lot and missed his home in a romantic way. This poem might be an allegory of his longing to be in Ireland, and perhaps his angst about the swans flying away has something to do about when he returns there, and the beauty, such as the swans, will be gone, and the Ireland he knew will also be gone, perhaps forever.
Please anyone help me!
