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).
