Abstract. The article analyzes one of the early poems of the Irish poet, dramatist and writer W. B. Yeats "The Cap and Bells". Special attention is paid to jesters image which anticipates the appearance of poets famous masks - Tom the Lunatic and Crazy Jane. "The Cap and Bells" is compared with other poems of the collection; the researcher identifies the parallels between this poem and Yeatss late lyrics. It is shown that "The Cap and Bells" is one of the poets early attempts to reveal the nature of interrelations between the poetical and non-poetical state of the world, to bring it to a common denominator, a certain ideal, "Unity of Being".
