The main idea of this poem is that this woman is being asked who out of all the men she has slept with pleasured her the most.

Personal thoughts At first I thought this poem was a confession of WB Yeats being gay and a time he spent with a man, we even searched up to see if he was gay which in fact came up that he may have been gay but that no one knew exactly if he was.

Analysis this poem is about a woman being asked about which man had pleasured her the most. Stanza two, which is also a part of part two, talks about how she feels she was no better to him than any other woman he slept with, but that how also when they just talked he was told things that others never knew.

On the left is a link called comparison. Part one is where the woman is first being asked the question. The line "flinging from his arms I laughed" tells of a good time they had together, the middle lines are sort of playing with the listener by not exactly revealing the truth of what they really did together.

She implies that this time in her life is a part of her and makes her who she is and nothing will ever take away the good things she remembers with this man. I gave what other women gave That stepped out of their clothes.
