Abstract

The ancient Greek culture can be a chief origin of the European culture. Yeats showed a strong interest in the myth, especially the tragedies of Ancient Greece. He derived a lot from them to compose symbols and images in literary creation. This paper aims at a research in Yeats' application of the Greek elements in his poems by interpreting A Woman Homer Sung and Among School Children, to give a better understanding of Yeats' philosophy of arts.
