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.
