About this title


8vo. xiii, 247 pp, preface, 1. W. B. Yeats: Early Plays; 2. Fenollosa and Pound: Agents of Transmission; 3. The Japanese No: Art and Accomplishment; 4. W. B. Yeats: Plays for Dancers; 5. W. B. Yeats: Later Assimilation; appendix, notes, selected bibliography, index. First Edition, 1976. Blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine. ``This book outlines the development of Yeats as a dramatist and investigates the precise nature and interrelationship of theme, stagecraft, and literary form in his work for the theatre. The author emphasizes the centrality of a mystical/occult view of human experience and the anti-illusionistic production techniques in achieving the desired effect. The influence of contemporary stage conventions and radical experiments are considered along with those discovered in or confirmed by practice of the Japanese Noh as understood by Yeats and Ezra Pound." from the jacket flap.
