Abstract

[Willian B. Yeats. The Aesthetics of Politics]. In «The Lady of the Lake», by Gioacchino Rossini, Helen names «umíle» her shelter from the dawn to the evening shadows. In Yeats, humility is not known in its fullness. He sings the Celtic hero Cuchulain, tied to a stone, as Christ on the cross. Christ is the Redeemer of the original sin. In the Easter Rising, Cuchulain is the Redeemer of Eire-Ireland from British rule. Both devoted to justice. The justice in politics. The justice in law. The justice in moral rights. The justice in Yeats’s relationship with Maud Gonne. The justice as a cross. The justice as a rose in the heart. These are the fundamental ideas explored in this work. Is Finn again awake? There is another Troy to burn?
