"Leda and the Swan" by William Butler Yeats
This was shown through the last two lines of the poem: "Did she put on his knowledge with his power
Before the indifferent beak could let her drop?"
Through this line, Yeats made indirect links with the creation of Clytemnestra to the birth of a new nation Here Yeats indicates that the birth of the new nation. The use of the question "indifferent beak could let her drop?", conveys his unimaginable thoughts of Ireland's transformation into a chaotic civilization, subtly the readers were able to uncover his hopes for the pre-colonial Ireland to remain.
"Leda and the swan" had marked the beginning of modernist works as it had drifted away from the traditional sonnet form, however Yeats's work is condensed with meanings. His abstract ideas combined with daring images, allowed the readers to engage into his piece of art. At the same time, permitting an inside view of his mind, thoughts and perspectives of not only himself but his homeland.
