User: What is the gyre in line 1of the poem “The Second Coming”? TURNING and turning in the widening gyre a. A hunting falcon c. Spirits of the dead b. A person who hunts with a falcon d. A cycle of history

Weegy: d. A cycle of history PS: Line 1: The "gyre" is an important recurring symbol in Yeats s poetry. Technically, it stands from the alternation between two historical cycles: one characterized by order and growth, the other by chaos and decay. [ It s comparable to the Chinese concepts of Yin and Yang. Yeats wrote a poem called "The Gyres" in his collection The Tower, but even there it s still pretty confusing. Fortunately, all that philosophical background isn t essential to the poem. ]
