BL. W. B. Yeats

175. Rees, Thomas R. ‘Ezra Pound and the Modernization of W. B. Yeats’. Journal of Modern Literature 4 (1975): 574-92.

A section on the effects in Yeats’s work of Pound’s work with the nô is riddled with errors of fact: nô actors do not remove their masks on stage; Fenollosa was not a professor of Chinese at Harvard; the Japanese government did not send a warship to England for his body (see BK103); Itô had not acted in the nô and was not a woman.
