Let's start with 'The Stolen Child'.

An easy question to kick us off: where is the poem set?

An imaginary fairlyland is also a good answer, though these faeries are present in a real wold as well.

I suppose it's the western parts of Ireland which represented 'Romantic Ireland', where the faeries live.

Maybe it blends with Yeats' sound world in this poem better?
