BL. W. B. Yeats

56. Note. Quoted in The Making of Yeats’s A Vision [38]: A Study of the Automatic Script, vol. 2, by George Mills Harper. Carbondale: Southern Illinois UP, 1987.

In Yeats’s notes and scribblings in the ‘unstructured Script’ (see 57) of 28 July 1919 he drew a diagram to help determine the answer to a question that had been troubling him, and included at the bottom of the page a question that indicated its function: ‘Do we go to Japan [?]’ (p. 310). For notes about the invitation to Japan and Yeats’s reaction to it, see especially 48i.
