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.
