Abstract

This thesis is a detailed analysis of In the Seven Woods, one of the early volumes of W. B. Yeats's verse. I have attempted to demonstrate that this is an important biographical document because it reflects the thoughts and emotions of the poet during a crucial period of his life. I have also examined this as an example of Yeats's practice of unifying the poems of a given volume by the repetition of key symbolic motifs.
