Description:

This paper discusses three poems, two by Yeats ("Cathleen ni Houlihan" and "The Rose Tree") and one by John Mangan ("Dark Rosaleen") and their personification of Ireland as both a woman and as nature itself. All three poems are nationalistic, and the author points out formal techniques like metaphor, and sentimental uses of the feminine nation-archetype, that the poets use to construct their vision of Ireland and the struggle for Irish independence.
