Comparative Perspectives of Yeats and Stevens

2015 The Yeats Journal of Korea  
Yeats and Stevens are poets of nature and imagination. Yeats mystifies nature, but Stevens demystifies it. Although they describe nature as a main theme and setting, they view nature in different ways and perspectives. Yeats describes nature as an incomprehensible mystery beyond human rational, whereas Stevens observes nature as otherness and reality. Thus, they take different directions and find different sets of values in nature.
