  • A. Norman Jeffares


Yeats wrote in his Introduction to WS that in the spring of 1929:

life returned to me as an impression of the uncontrollable energy and daring of the great creators; it seemed to me that but for journalism and criticism, all that evasion and explanation, the world would be torn in pieces. I wrote Mad as the Mist and Snow, & mechanical little song, and after that almost all that group of poems, called in memory of those exultant weeks Words for Music Perhaps.
