BL. W. B. Yeats
93. Itô, Michio. Utsukushiku naru kyôshitsu (A classroom for the beautiful). Tokyo: Hôbunkan, 1956.
Pages 20-34 of Itô’s autobiography include
fond reminiscences of his friendships with Yeats and Pound, first-hand
description of their work with Fenollosa’s manuscripts and the first
production of At the Hawk’s
Well (12), and the story about
Asquith that makes sense of lines about Itô in Canto LXXVII (see
BK56c). See also Itô’s
and, for English translation of pertinent sections of both that work and
this, Carruthers (178).
