Yeats was seen as a keen sympathizer on the state of his country and had supported the middle class of the society that further dominated the political scenario of Ireland followed by the struggle for Independence. In his work he tries to strip-off the petty bourgeoisie group of Ireland or on other hand, out of angst he beautifully weaved the world of utopia where peasants were seen happy cohabiting with the aristocrats. This vision is created to signify the importance of land for a peasant as subsistence for their living.Yeats from his early days was seen as a supporter of those aristocrats having liberal opinions. Moreover his interest towards aristocratic women who according to him are responsible for their own traditions and also the “ritualizers of passion and art”. The Countess Cathleen perfectly fits with the ideals of Yeats as it shows the queen sacrificing everything to save her kingdom and the people. Many critics often suggested his model of character has strong resemblance to Maud Gonne – the lady for which the author shows unconditional love and even dedicated this play on her name. It was even stated that the idea to write the play ignited after his meeting with Maud Gonne that helped creating an imagery of an aristocratic beauty that can sacrifice herself just for the love towards for the people. Even during the year 1892 after finishing the play, Yeats clearly expressed his strong faith to those beautiful women’s hailing from noble families as a bearer of protector for common people and also mentioned his love towards Gonne through this play.“The Countess Cathleen” further showed his use of double plot in the play. Critics claimed the application of double plot was primarily intended to show kings or queens standing in same level to that of other characters who are possessed with occult powers. This also raised his close connection to his occult studies. The double plot which is the focal point behind this play gave a clear idea behind his ideal views to see a ruler as compassionate and importance of the local people. Looking back at some of his plays it also becomes clear that he always tried to depict the protagonist of the play as a hero who either belongs from aristocratic tradition or aspires to be one. It is the success or failure of the hero that depends on how he is able to meet expectations of the lower class of people. The main motif thus can be considered depiction of a society in fine balance.
