during this serious research of the impression of W. B. Yeats (1865–1939) at the poetry and drama of Robinson Jeffers (1887–1962), Deborah Fleming examines similarities in imagery, panorama, trust in everlasting recurrence, use of fable, mistrust of rationalism, and commitment to culture. even though Yeats’s and Jeffers’s kinds differed broadly, Towers of delusion and Stone examines how the 2 males shared a imaginative and prescient of modernity, rejected modern values in desire of traditions (some in their personal making), and created poetry that sought to alter these values.

Jeffers’s famous competition to modernist poetry compelled him for many years to the margins of severe appraisal, the place he used to be noticeable as an eccentric with no aesthetic content material. but either Yeats and Jeffers formulated social and poetic philosophies that proceed to discover relevance in severe and cultural thought. enticing Yeats’s paintings enabled Jeffers to advance a comparable, notwithstanding distinctive, feel of what issues and subject material have been most suitable for poetic recreation. His connection to Yeats is helping to provide an explanation for the character of Jeffers’s poetry at the same time it is helping to elucidate Yeats’s effect on those that him. furthermore, Fleming argues, Jeffers’s curiosity in Yeats means that critics misunderstand Jeffers in the event that they take his rejection of modernism (as exemplified by means of Wallace Stevens, William Carlos Williams, and Ezra Pound) as a rejection of latest poetry or the method wherein glossy poetry got here into being.
