BH. John Gould Fletcher

32. Nishiguchi, Junko. ‘John Gould Fletcher no Japanese Prints [7] o megutte: ukiyoe to haiku no eikyô’ (The influence of ukiyoe and haiku on Fletcher’s Japanese Prints). Asphodel 20 (1986): 128-44.


Nishiguchi finds that Fletcher was greatly interested in ukiyoe and understood the ‘spirit’ of haiku and Zen, primarily through his reading of Bashô (Ap), and that he was able to incorporate these understandings into his theories of poetry, but that the poems themselves are not representative of the understanding.
