Peter Ure talks about two recent critical books: Romantic Image by Frank Kermode , and The Romantic Survival by John Bayley.
Both books include an extended study of the poetry of W. B. Yeats ; both writers ' share the conviction that Yeats solved the problem that had nagged away at his predecessors, about the relation of poetry to life, and the poem to action.'
