Yeats tells us that the rebels may have been bewildered by excess of love, and England may keep faith, after all yeah, right.
So he's not really championing them as much as our received image of the Republican Yeats would have us think.

August 13, Joe Pellegrino. His theory has been called one of natural pantheism for this reason. In it he tells the story of his inner life from the earliest childhood up to But the events do not always follow each of the chronological or even logical order, for the poem is shaped by a kind of internal logic of the growth of mind rather than by the sequence of eternal events.

It is an attempt to establish a principle of continuity and equilibrium within change. The Prelude is a modern poem in another sense; it is a self-reflective poem.
