BL. W. B. Yeats
142. Furukawa, Hisashi. ‘Yeats and Noh’. Yeats Society of Japan Annual Report 3 (1968-69): 5-6.
Synopsis of a lecture given at the third general meeting
of the Yeats Society of Japan in 1967. Furukawa, a scholar of the nô,
urges Yeats scholars to take a greater interest in the relation between
the nô and Yeats’s plays. Suggests in passing that the ‘reason
for the success’ of At the
Hawk’s Well (12) may be found in the fact
that neither Yeats nor Itô (Ap)
was well-informed about the nô, and that Yeats ‘was not sympathetic’
to the kyôgen.
