BL. W. B. Yeats
222. Dorn, Karen. Players and Painted Stage: The Theatre of W. B. Yeats. Brighton: Harvester, 1984.
Includes a chapter about Yeats’s collaborations
with Craig (see D17), and another
that traces the influence of the nô in Four Plays for Dancers
(17). Dorn finds that ‘though Yeats
greatly admired the element of presentation in the Noh theatre, he adapted
the Noh form to what is fundamentally a different type of drama’.
Based on ‘Play, Set and Performance in the Theatre of W. B. Yeats’,
PhD thesis, University of Cambridge, 1973.
