William Butler Yeats

William Butler Yeats (1865-1939) was an Irish poet and one of the great writers of the 20th century. A pillar of the Irish literary establishment, he helped to found the Abbey Theatre, and in his later years served two terms as a Senator of the Irish Free State. Often considered a Symbolist, he was preoccupied with metaphysics, the occult, physical and spiritual masks, mythology (especially Irish legends) as well as with cyclical theories of life, although he retained his formalism. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. His poetry collections include The Wild Swans at Coole, The Tower, and The Winding Stair and Other Poems.

Emily Dickinson

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) was American lyric poet who lived mostly in isolation with her family in Amherst, MA, and commanded an original brilliance of style and integrity of vision. Her poetry was not publicly recognized in her lifetime, but she is now considered to be one of the most important and influential 19th-century American poets and a central figure in Western literature
