In comedy a society forms around the hero: in tragedy the chorus, however faithful, usually represents the society from which the hero is gradually isolated. Such titles as The Tower and The Winding Stair indicate its importance for Yeats, and the lunar symbolism and the apocalyptic imagery of The Tower and Sailing to Byzantium are both thoroughly consistent.
