BD. Edmund Blunden

152. [Blunden]. ‘Nippophil’. Review of Fenollosa, by Lawrence Chisolm, and The Chinese Written Character as a Medium for Poetry, by Ernest Fenollosa. TLS, 6 August 1964, p. 701.


Chisolm’s biography is ‘careful’ and ‘quiet’, though Blunden believes that Fenollosa (D10) belongs more in the ‘romantic’ tradition of Hearn (see D9) than the work allows. The Chinese Written Character was first published in 1919, not, as Blunden writes, 1936 (see BK32). Includes passing reference to Epochs of Chinese and Japanese Art (D10c).
