125. Ueda, Makoto. Zeami, Bashô, Yeats, Pound: A Study in Japanese and English Poetics. The Hague: Mouton, 1965.
Ueda’s study of the poetics of the four writers
of the title succeeds in its stated aim of ‘illuminat[ing] . . .
features of poetry which transcend the difference of language and literary
convention’, and offers much that is useful as a background for
this study, but beyond a few passing remarks the work does not attempt
to trace influence. Based on a PhD thesis of the same title, University
of Washington, 1961, abstract in DAI 22/11: 4007-08.
