BF. William Empson
25. †Irie, Yukio. Reminiscence of Empson in Japan.
Another obscure Fukuhara reference (see 23 and 24):
‘Yukio Irie, [Empson’s] old student, owes his scholarship
much to Mr Empson, whose words and deeds in leading Irie in his studies
can be read in his talk about Empson’s home-life [in Japan] printed
in vol. V of Rintaro Fukuhara’s Writings
(Tokyo 1968, pp. 562-6).’ Volume 5 of Fukuhara Rintarô
chosakushû (Collected works
of Fukuhara Rintarô) was published by Kenkyusha in 1968, but includes
nothing by Irie and nothing about Empson.
