BL. W. B. Yeats

141. Seki, Masako. ‘Dance in the Plays of W. B. Yeats: The Evolution of the Imagery and Technique of Dance’. Eibungaku hyôron 16 (1968): 1-34.

Argues that while Yeats was interested in dance even in his early plays, it was in encounters with Itô (Ap) and the nô that he discovered a method for incorporating dance into the conceptual centre of his drama, and that this allowed him adequately to express his ‘visionary world’ on the stage. Focuses in particular on Four Plays for Dancers (17).
