Our exploration begins with one Irish Nobel Prize winner,  W.B. Yeats, representing the Romantic legacy, at the beginning  of the 20th century, and ends with another, Seamus  Heaney, at the end of the century. In Great Britain, romantic  and realistic views on the Great War are contrasted in  the poems of the soldier Wilfred Owen and the VAD-nurse  May Wedderburn Cannan. Some aspects of Modernism  announce themselves here, but its genuine breakthrough  comes with T.S. Eliot and his hugely influential The Waste  Land (1922) and Four Quartets (1936-42). W.H. Auden continues  this movement with poems that have a strong philosophical  impact but also speak to the heart. After World War  2, psychological and social realism dominate the poems of,  respectively, Stevie Smith and Philip Larkin.
