Summary "This book reconsiders the legacies of Rudyard Kipling and William Butler Yeats to evaluate the parallels, divergences, and convergences which underscore their literature. Over 150 years since 1865, their year of birth, this volume sheds light on the works of two seminal litterateurs of the 20th-century English literary canon to highlight the conversational undercurrents that cut across their diametrically polar worldviews. Contextualizing their texts to the larger milieu that Kipling and Yeats lived in and contributed to, the book investigates a range of aesthetic and perceptual similarities -- from cultures of violence to notions masculinity, Shakespeare to poesy, British imperialism and industrial modernity -- to establish the perceptible consonance of their works. Kipling and Yeats are known to never have corresponded, but these essays show evidence of the influence that their acute awareness of each other's work and thoughts may have had"-- Provided by publisher
