    the second coming .... help me please

    Hello

    guys , please help me

    I have a presentation tomorow

    indeed I'm not interested in literature

    so I couldn't analyse this poim

    The Secon coming

    TURNING and turning in the widening gyre
    The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.

    Surely some revelation is at hand;
    Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
    The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
    When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
    Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert
    A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
    A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
    Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
    Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
    The darkness drops again; but now I know
    That twenty centuries of stony sleep
    Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
    And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
    Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?



    :::

    tell me
    what ia the theme of this poem
    and also the Tone
    the Imagery
    every thing comes to your mind

    please
    don't ignore me
    say anything

    Ian waiting for you

    Yeats once made the statement that The Second Coming has multiple meanings. It's not just refering to Christianity. Yeats was interested in the idea of two thousand-year-old cycles. The Second Coming is about one of these cycles as much as it is Christiainity.
    Dostoevsky gives me more than any scientist.
