Who was your last name most likely addressed to?

The poem is addressed to a single young individual, likely a lady based on Yeat's personal facts. (Though a reader may relate the poem's emotions to a guy.) Because she was Yeats' inspiration, I'm assuming Maud Gonne is the person about whom he wrote. Her family name was pronounced "Gone" and her first name was used as a nickname for Mary.

Yeat's full name was William Butler Yeats. The poem is called "Maud." Thus, "Mary Gone" would be the correct address for this note.

Although not proven by any evidence, many believe that Yeat's friend Oscar Wilde wrote the note as a response to this poem. Because there is no direct evidence of this assumption, it remains just that - an assumption. However, because both men were involved with the arts and aesthetics, some have gone so far as to say that they are two halves of a whole that should be joined together in marriage.

They met through Lady Gregory, who was acquainted with both men. In 1872, Lady Gregory organized a supper party at which she presented Yeats with several poems he had written. The following year, he visited London where he stayed with Lady Gregory while writing more poems. They became close friends and often discussed literature and art together. It was at one of these parties that Yeats first met Oscar Wilde.

Who was the speaker as I grew older?

The poet grew up in the United States. He battled for racial equality and spoke on behalf of all African Americans in America at the time. Because both are African Americans, the speaker in the poem is really the poet. They both face prejudice and attempt to overcome it. The poet uses his talent as a writer to express himself through words and becomes an influential voice in American history.

Here is how William Wordsworth begins "The World Is Too Much with Us":

From these contentions of a disturbed mind, let us draw two conclusions: first, that there is nothing peculiar in the nature of human thoughts; secondly, that we must not judge of the operations of the soul by those which affect the body alone. We must remember that spirits are omnipresent, but bodies are confined to places. Therefore, if two or more persons think alike, it does not prove that they come to such a conclusion through reflection; instead, it shows that some other influence has acted upon them both.

This poem is part of a collection called The Prelude, which means "the fore-runner". It consists of twelve books that were written by Wordsworth when he was between the ages of 23 and 42. Books I-V are autobiographical while VI-XII are philosophical. The prelude series as a whole is considered one of the major poems by Wordsworth.

Who was the author of the gate of the year?

His wife, Queen Elizabeth the Queen Consort, brought the poem to his notice. The book "The Servant Queen and the King She Serves," published for Queen Elizabeth II's 90th birthday and with a prologue by Queen Elizabeth, claims that the poem was sent to her father by the young Elizabeth herself, when she was 13 years old. According to the book, her father liked it so much he had it printed immediately in order to give it to Elizabeth when she came of age.

Nowadays we know this isn't true because the poem wasn't written until 1555, nearly 10 years after Edward IV's death. But what if it were true? It would certainly explain why there are no records of Elizabeth writing to her father during this time period. The only letter we have from her while she was still a girl princess comes several years later, when she wrote to thank Henry VIII for appointing her guardian under the age of 18.

As for the poem itself, it's interesting to note that although it is attributed to Elizabeth, some historians believe it may actually be written by Thomas Wyatt. He was a poet and courtier who served as Ambassador to France and then Earl Marshal (the highest position at court) under Edward IV. Wyatt died in 1542, almost 20 years before the poem was written, but he did spend many years at court and knew Elizabeth when she was just a little girl.
