What they’re saying in the Prepwise staff room:

Chris: “How do you beat a poet that wrote, “Those that I fight I do not hate/Those that I guard I do not love.”  You don’t.  Get lost in the immense power of Yeat’s words.”

Ethan: “Yeats writes about a number of interesting topics including war and mysticism. However, I’ve always been most impressed with the unmatched beauty of lyrical poetry, of which “When You are Old” serves a great example.”
