BL. W. B. Yeats

99. Suetsugu, Yoshiko. ‘The Influence of Japanese Noh Plays Upon the Symbolist Plays of W. B. Yeats’. Hikaku bunka 5 (1958): 149-249.

In addition to pointing out elements of nô theory and practice that Yeats did not understand, Suetsugu summarises what Yeats himself wrote about his interest in the form, and traces particular manifestations of influence in his work, particularly in the ‘plays for dancers’ (see 17). First presented as an MA thesis, Bryn Mawr College, 1957.
