BJ. William Plomer

34. Hosillos, Lucila. ‘The Exotic Imitation: The Japanese Poetry of William Plomer’. Hikaku bungaku 20 (1967): 31-46. Reprint, Dillman Review 20/1 (1972): 46-64.

Hosillos begins with the proposition that Plomer is not a ‘first-rate’ poet, then moves to generalisations about the ‘imprint’ of Japanese art and poetry, particularly the haiku, on his writing. She does not seem aware of Curlew River (18) or the other ‘church operas’ (19 and 21), and in spite of the title her study addresses the ‘exotic’ only in passing.
