Matthew Gibson explores the consistent and densely woven allusions to Coleridge in Yeatss prose and poetry, often in conjunction with other Romantic figures, arguing that the earlier poet provided him with both a model of philosopher--the sage--and an interpretation of metaphysical ideas which were to have resounding effect on his later poetry, and upon his writing of A Vision.
