WB Yeats is generally recognised as being Ireland's most important poet. He gained this distinction not only because of his ability to write excellent poetry, but also because he expressed the life he was living through his poems. He was also an important cultural and political figure. Arts and culture and political life in the newly emerging Irish state benefited significantly from his involvement.
