William Butler Yeats wrote many memorable poems and was awarded the Nobel prize for literature in 1923.' ‘The Stolen Child’ written in 1886, is one of Yeats’ early poems, and celebrates Irish stories that his mother loved. In this poem, a human child is enticed away into a fairyland. Here the child forgets his friends and family because the fairies are enchanting, they convince him that their world is full of joy and playful, while the human world is full of tears.
