Eliot and Yeats


Jewel Spears Brooker writes, “‘The Second Coming’ by W. B. Yeats and The Waste Land . . .  [both] deal powerfully with the state of civilization in the twentieth century; both suggest that civilization is falling apart” (240).   Fears addressed in both poems continue to preoccupy contemporary society:  “There is a real danger that contemporary man will destroy his universe and everything in it, that he will literally annihilate himself and his civilization” (242). 
Yeats’ rough beast appears to indicate that “Modern man” is on the brink of birthing a violent, bestial world.  How would you describe “Modern man” based on the poems you read for this week?  What is one primary concern we see expressed by “Modern man” in Eliot and Yeats?  Do Eliot and Yeats envision the same types of Modern figures in this week’s readings?
