From what I can glean he didn't die of alcohol related complications, so he at least wasn't an Irish-level drunk.

yeah, I can't find anything that hints at him being a roaring drunk. and really, he was much too mystical and weird for the bottle. he was high on life, as they say. so there we go. a sober irish writer, and a good one to boot.

right. him and blatvasky and all those starry-eyed tarot reading motherfuckers were opium guzzlers, although I think yeats probably sobered up in his later years. you know, when his poetry actually made some sense.

Perhaps.


Keats wrote:

Give me women, wine, and snuff
Untill I cry out "hold, enough!"
You may do so sans objection
Till the day of resurrection:
For, bless my beard, they aye shall be
My beloved Trinity.



How can you not like this fellow though? Very Happy

He really was a beautiful writer.
