The Second Coming

This week in class, we’re reading “The Second Coming” by William Butler Yeats.

In this famous poem, William Butler Yeats paints a terrifying, apocalyptic scene in order to describe the atmosphere of Europe following World War I.

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Technology, Progress & Industry and War & Peace as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

“What should the future look like?” and “How are we changed by war?”
