Hi
How would you classify Yeats' poem - An Irish Airman Foresees His Death ? Is is modernist, romantic?

Thanks in advance

Modernist, very existential in nature. Much of Yeats's romantic feelings are absent from this poem, as he is essentially questioning the point of life, due to the futility of war and political upheaval. (Just my opinion)

It's a bit of both, there's a romantic sense in his 'impulse', but there's also kind of an existentialist ending that shows a transition towards mordernism.

Btw if anyone's got a list of techniques in Easter 1916, it would be really helpful.
