Beauty is not skin deep.discuss this with reference to FOR ANNE GREGORY.

Dear Student,

 'For Anne Gregory' is a romantic poem by William Butler Yeats. In this poem, the poet talks about the love between a man and a woman. The man likes the outward appearance of Anne, especially her yellow hair but Anne doesn't approve of his love. She says that the colour of her hair is subjective to her personal choice and she can change it whenever she wants. She wants the young man to show his love for her based on her merits and personality rather than her physical appearance. Yeats mentions that it's natural for humans to be attracted to the physical beauty of other human beings and that it is only God who has the ability to judge a human being by their merits. Men and women should also understand the real worth of others which lies beyond their physical beauty.
