Sorry, no etymologies found.
If he wishes to show that "No Second Troy" is a better poem than "Upon a House Shaken by the Land Agitation," I am not persuaded by his telling me that the latter poem is "an incantation against elementary democratic reforms" and that the former poem enacts Yeats's "hard-wrung triumph, over selfpity."
It occurred to him that he might be suffering a bad case of selfpity, but why the hell not?
In case it be thought that a note of selfpity has crept in to this account of my apparent boredom, I must say that the intention was never to complain about my fate, but merely to explain the form of my protest.
