BL. W. B. Yeats
86. Gamberini, Spartaco. ‘Il teatro di William Butler Yeats’. Rivista di studi teatrali 1/11-12 (1954): 47-89.
Section 2, ‘Ezra Pound e I nô’,
traces in general terms Pound’s role in the advent of Imagism, his
acquisition of Fenollosa’s manuscripts, and his subsequent enthusiasm
for the nô, which he passed on to Yeats, who found in the form the
‘ideal theatre’ for which he had been searching. Includes
discussion of Yeats’s technical appropriation of nô principles
in each of the Four Plays for Dancers (17).
