    It should never be forgotten that Yeats is perfectly capable of contradicting himself even about some of his most cherished speculations. Nevertheless, the theoretical aspect of his later work exhibits a marked internal coherence: it is not possible to separate his ideas about society, his theories about the spirit world, his doctrine of the image, his cyclical theory of history. It is for this reason that I have referred, in brief, to “Eugenical and Psychical Aesthetics.”
