who would win in a fight...

...W.B. Yeats or Walter Benjamin?

Yeats wrote poetry and was obsessed with arcane goofy magic. He was sort of occult.

Benjamin wrote essays and was concerned with the immanence of memory, the artifacts of presence, and the effusions of culture across the mysterious arc of time. He was sort of abstract.

I put my money on Benjamin. Yeats would be running around the ring trying to cast blank verse spells against a massive consciousness.
