Essay on the use of voices in the poetry of W.B. Yeats. A survey of the different techniques used by Yeats to create voices and characters. Special emphasis on the poems: "The Lover tells of the Rose in his Heart", "An Irish Airman Foresees his death", "The Second Coming" and "Among School Children".

This question also appears in “Byzantium” and “Sailing to Byzantium” where he talks about leaving his life to access “unaging intellect” but also shows the balance, with the struggle of choosing between the passion of life and the coldness of death.
