Crazy Jane Talks With The Bishop

William Butler Yeats

Add a new comment.

Added by: Mona
Crazy Jane is a lunatic, a homeless woman, whom conventional people try to reform; she wants none of that, for she knows that life is suffering; that there is a dark side to everything; life is a paradox symbolized by the physiological fact that "love has pitched his mansion in the place of excrement."
Crazy Jane
Added by: Lee
Crazy Jane unstands that in life you need both the material and spiritual to exist together.

The Bishop tells her that she is old now and therefore she must give up sex and start thinking about the afterlife.

Unless you have pain you won't fully understand joy.

This poem is phiophical and realist.
