An Irish Airman Foresees His Death

An Irish Airman Foresees His Death

This graphic poetry is an interpretation of 'An Irish Airman Foresees His Death', one of the many great poems written by William B. Yeats.

The poet's original intentions and thoughts of the poem are translated into a sequential art form in the futuristic context, reflecting the universality of the poem. This particular style of illustration is used to open up the poetry to younger generation.
