BL. W. B. Yeats
202. Matsuyama, Akio. ‘Yeats buyôgeki to nôgaku’ (Yeats’s dance plays and the nô). Eibungaku 53 (1980): 57-71.
Matsuyama outlines Yeats’s occultist beliefs,
particularly as set forth in ‘Swedenborg, Mediums, and the Desolate
Places’ (15a), and calls attention
to their similarity to the ontological underpinnings of the mugen nô;
analysis of the effects of Yeats’s intuitive understanding of the
form focus particularly on the relation between The
Dreaming of the Bones (14a)
and Pound’s version of Nishikigi (BK8).
