Yeats is widely regarded as one of the most important English-language writers of the twentieth century. A hero of the pen rather than the sword. A noble prize winner for Literature and a two-term Senator of the Irish Free State, Yeats lived a full, active life that combined poetry and politics. Unlike other modernists who dabbled in free verse, Yeats was a master of standard verse styles as well. The influence of modernism on his work can be seen in the gradual rejection of the more conventionally romantic dialect of his early work in favor of the more austere vocabulary and more straightforward approach to his themes that gradually characterize his middle period poetry and plays, which include the volumes In the Seven Woods, Responsibilities, and The Green Helmet.
