BL. W. B. Yeats

134. Stucki, Yasuko. ‘Yeats’s Drama and the Nô: A Comparative Study in Dramatic Theories’. Modern Drama 9 (1966): 101-22.

Stucki systematically analyses points of similarity often taken for granted between Yeats’s dance plays and the nô, and argues that all fundamental principles of the form are ‘negated’ in Yeats. Examples are drawn primarily from At the Hawk’s Well (12) and The Only Jealousy of Emer (14b). Includes reference to Zen, yûgen, and the mugen nô.
