    Yeats 'Easter 1916' I last night realised to be a great poem but you do have to understand a bit of the context around it to get the full effect.

    Poetry is an argument with the self, he said, and in his case it's pointedly an unresolved argument. Whereas with Milton the argument is unresolved against Milton's wishes.
