A. Critical and Comparative Studies

34. Wells, Henry Willis. ‘Poem into Play: Impressions on the West’. In The Classical Drama of the Orient. London: Asia Publishing House, 1965.

Outlines resemblances to the nô in Yeats’s plays written after 1916 (see especially BL12) and Stevens’s Three Travelers Watch a Sunrise (see CA7). Not an influence study so much as a tracing of similarities, many of which may be argued to have come from sources other than the nô, or to have been accidental, but the work remains perceptive and useful for the sheer number of ‘striking likenesses’ identified and discussed.
