Biography[edit | edit source]

One of his poems was The Song of the Wandering Aengus. When Jonathan Archer could not get to sleep during his childhood, his mother Sally Archer would often recite the poem to him. He did not learn that it was by Yeats until he was much older. (ENT episode: "Rogue Planet")

Miles O'Brien's mother Megan O'Brien tried to get him interested in Yeats by the poem No Second Troy. O'Brien later reflected that he had no interest in, or understanding of, the poetry or the history illustrated in it as a child. (DS9 novelization: The Search)
