39. Mayer, Mark. ‘A Structural and Stylistic Analysis of the Benjamin Britten “Curlew River”’. EdD thesis, Columbia University Teacher’s College, 1983. Abstract in DAI 44/5: 1370A.
Examines Plomer’s adaptation of Sumidagawa and finds that ‘far more than a mere pastiche
from the Japanese, Curlew River
 demands the movement and stylization of Nô’.
