A Man Young And Old: Ii. Human Dignity (William Butler Yeats Poem)

Classic Poem. The Dignity of Manhood by E. I am a Man! Who more than I? If any, let him spring Into the light of God's free sky, And frisk his best and sing. God's own presentment I can claim, And can the die display; The bourn from which the heavens came I know, nor fear the way. And so I kiss the lass.
Oh what is man, great Maker of mankind! That Thou to him so great respect dost bear; That Thou adorn'st him with so bright a mind, Makest him a king, and even an angel's peer? Oh what a lively life, what heavenly power, What spreading virtue, what a sparkling fire, How great, how plentiful, how rich a dower, Dost Thou within this dying flesh inspire! Thou leav'st Thy print in other works of Thine, But Thy whole image Thou in man hast writ; There cannot be a creature more divine, Except, like Thee, it should be infinite: Nor hath He given these blessings for a day, Nor made them on the body's life depend; The soul, though made in time, survives for aye; And though it hath beginning, sees no end.

That is what Thomas Mann June 6, —August 12, examined on the cusp of World War II with a prescience that bellows across the decades to speak to our own epoch and to every epoch that will succeed us. When Hitler seized power in , the year-old Mann, who had won the Nobel Prize in Literature five years earlier, went into exile in Switzerland. The following year, he visited America for the first time. He returned each year thereafter, until he finally emigrated permanently in and became one of a handful of German expatriates in the United States to vocally oppose Nazism and fascism.
