Yeats is presented as an author whose work can no longer be classified as late romantic, because it bears definite modern traits. Yeats's modernism features in part of his early symbolist poetry and becomes dominant throughout his later works. His ritualized short plays (At the Hawk's Well, The Only Jealousy of Emer und The Death of Cuchulain), which have been neglected by critics for a long time, influenced Samuel Beckett's late experimental plays (...but the clouds..., What Where). Yeats's modernism is best grasped with an analytical method which joins a phenomenological and a deconstructionist approach. The combination of these two analytical approaches becomes necessary in order to capture the ambivalent interwovenness of elements of continuity and discontinuity in Yeats's style.
