BL. W. B. Yeats

253. Blondé, Allan. ‘The Japanese Nô Play in Plays of William Butler Yeats and in Benjamin Britten’s Curlew River’ (BJ18). Kansai gakuin daigaku kenkyû ronshû 51 (1991): 109-16.


Blondé is enthusiastic in reporting similarities between the nô, Yeatsian drama, and Curlew River, but seems unaware of earlier, more detailed studies of the subject, including, for example, Taylor (180) and Alexander (BJ40), or that William Plomer was the librettist for CURLEW RIVER.
