BL. W. B. Yeats

233. Sekine, Masaru. ‘Yeats and the Noh’. In The Irish Writer and the Theatre. Gerrards Cross: Smythe, 1986.

Sekine’s knowledge of the nô is unassailable, and in evidence here. The work offers a cogent comparative analysis of the classical form and Yeats’s drama indebted to it. The dismissal of the ‘dance plays’ on grounds that they do not achieve the effects of their Japanese progenitors, however, misunderstands Yeats’s intentions.
