Instructor: James Hollis, PhD
Most serious students of literature consider William Butler Yeats as the greatest poet of the last century. This course considers his life, his loves, his varied engagements in Irish history, but most of all some of his enduring poems. One finds many Jungian themes in this keen observer of the soul, in intimate relationship, in politics, and in the search for the transcendent.
