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).
