To A Friend Whose Work Has Come To Nothing Analysis



Author: poem of William Butler Yeats Type: poem Views: 23

Now all the truth is out,

Be secret and take defeat

From any brazen throat,

For how can you compete,

Being honour bred, with one

Who, were it proved he lies,

Were neither shamed in his own

Nor in his neighbours' eyes?

Bred to a harder thing

Than Triumph, turn away

And like a laughing string

Whereon mad fingers play

Amid a place of stone,

Be secret and exult,

Because of all things known

That is most difficult.

.: :.

The poet says to someone: Now words out, be calm if people mock you, you have honour, your antagonist has none, care not for a Triumph over them, have honour and rejoice in defeatů which is hard.

.: :.

This poem is about Roman Triumph, that is why it is capitalized to help direct the reader to that word.
The poem is split into two halves. The first half is the description of the the scene that is taking place. the second half is when Yeats is talking to whomever is being paraded around Rome.
