Yes, I am. I was just thinking of starting a thread on Yeats lol.
Btw, I have a question. I was given 3 different practice questions for a Yeats essay. We are told that one of those practice questions will be coming in an upcoming assessment task.
These are the three question:
1. Yeats' poetry is a conflict between the real and the ideal.
2. An understanding of poetic structure and form is central to a full appreciation of Yeats' poetry.
3. Poetry makes nothing happen.

So I was wondering which one of those questions you think will come up. I personally think its either question 1 or 2. Because question 3 doesnt seem to test anything important.

oh my God, our teacher made us do the same thing as well:spin:
my questions are:
1. to what extent has the composer achieved his purpose
2. in your view, how does Yeats' portrayal of the complex nature of inspiration contribute to his enduring value of his poetry
3. how does the last stanza of three of Yeats poems summarise your opinion of the entire poem


for your questions it would either be 1 or 2 as number 3 isn't really a question you would probably find in the HSC

Ahhh, everyone i know seems to agree with you. IMHO i think if i got the same list of questions in my school i'd most likely get 1 or 2, but i'm not sure about what school you go so i can't tell. Btw, i was thinking we could start sharing notes for Yeats' poems.
I'll go first. I got this from this site and I found it pretty helpful. Not sure if you already have it, but yeah, here you go.
