254. De Gruchy, John. ‘W. B. Yeats’s Japan: More Myth than Reality’. MA thesis, McGill University, 1991. Abstract in Master Abstracts International 31/2: 574.

Analyses ‘the development of Yeats’s image of Japan’ and surveys ‘sources of information Yeats had on Japan’. Argues that Heian and Ashikaga culture and early nineteenth-century Japanese arts were as important to his view of the country as the nô, and that these combined ‘to produce a composite, mythical vision of Japan’.
