BL. W. B. Yeats
56. Note. Quoted in The Making of Yeats’s A Vision : 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.
