A Full Moon in March

  • A. Norman Jeffares

Abstract

After Yeats had written the last poems of WS he thought his inspiration was drying up: for a time he wondered if Lady Gregory’s death and the closing of Coole had ended the subconscious drama of his imaginative life. Then he returned to verse with ‘Parnell’s Funeral’, in which he ‘rhymed passages from a lecture’ given in America. In Dublin there followed an intense interlude of politics, and a reawakened interest in AV expressed in the Supernatural Songs — metaphysical, passionate and a brilliant answer to his earlier worry that perhaps he was too old for poetry.
