ABSTRACT
This article discusses two books "W.B. Yeats: The Tragic Phase," by Vivienne Koch and "The Lonely Tower," by T.R. Henn. Limiting herself in theme and material Koch illuminates both in the light of a workable theory, but Henn, although he had much unpublished material at his disposal, essays too many themes and brings few to resolution. Both authors are primarily concerned with the analysis of Yeats later poetry, to which Koch brings a forthright intelligence in contrast to Henn's academic thin bloodedness.
