BL. W. B. Yeats

153. Moore, John Rees. ‘Plays for Dancers’. In Masks of Love and Death: Yeats as Dramatist. Ithaca: Cornell UP, 1971.

Like many earlier works, this chapter of Moore’s study argues that the conventions of the nô appealed to Yeats primarily ‘because they gave reinforcement to [his] old ambitions’ of ‘creating a theater of opposite tendencies from that of Ibsen and Shaw’.
