BL. W. B. Yeats

187. Oshima, Shôtarô. ‘Between Shapes and Shadows’. In Myth and Reality in Irish Literature, edited by Joseph Ronsley. Waterloo, Ont.: Wilfred Laurier UP, 1977.

Asserts that both Zeami (Ap) and Chikamatsu (Ap) found ‘the essence of art in the subtle boundary between the real and the unreal’, and finds similarities in Yeatsian drama, concluding that ‘we cannot but be impressed at discovering what a profound community of aesthetic sensibility there is between the Irish and the Japanese people’. Includes brief notes about Itô (Ap).
