150. Londraville, Richard John. ‘To Asia for a Stage Convention: W. B. Yeats and the Noh’. PhD thesis, State University of New York at Albany, 1970. Abstract in DAI 31/6: 2925A-26A.
Argues that ‘without the agency of the Noh,
Yeats’s disparate . . . dramatic ideas might never
have coalesced’, and that ‘once he had discovered this form
and a tradition congenial to his ideas of drama, his manipulation of the
form showed a steadily increasing sophistication and strength’.
