* TheFairFolk: He seems to have really believed in them which makes sense as he was both a Celtophile and an occultist.



* TheOneThatGotAway: Maud Gonne. He proposed to her several times, including a week after her husband's funeral.

He was also one of the founders of Dublin's famous Abbey Theatre, and actually shamed a mob who rioted at the premiere of Sean O'Casey's ''Theatre/ThePloughAndTheStars'' there.

This guy is responsible for a lot of the StockQuotes floating around in pop culture. His poem "TheSecondComing" is the source of many {{Literary Allusion Title}}s and is his most famous and most referenced work[[note]]outside Ireland that is; ''in'' Ireland "Sailing to Byzantium" and "September 1913" are probably better known; "The Lake Isle of Innisfree" was voted the nation's favourite poem in an Irish Times poll.[[/note]]. If you hear a FauxlosophicNarration, read a snippet of poetry preceding a bunch of prose or even see a character trying to sound deep and meaningful, there is a reasonably good chance that William Butler Yeats is being quoted.
