The Author William Butler Yeats

The Attack on ‘The Playboy of the Western World,’ 1907

by


    Once, when midnight smote the air,
    Eunuchs ran through Hell and met
    From thoroughfare to thoroughfare,
    While that great Juan galloped by;
    And like these to rail and sweat
    Staring upon his sinewy thigh.
