The Noh Plays of William Butler Yeats: Accomplishment in Failure

The Noh Plays of William Butler Yeats: Accomplishment in Failure

Date: May 1971
Creator: Bays, Carol Ann
Description: This paper is a study of the effect of W. B. Yeats's contact with Japanese Noh drama on his work. The immediately discernible effect on his work can be seen, of course, in his adaptation of Noh dramatic form to his Four Plays for Dancers and The Death of Cuchulain. It is the thesis of this paper, then, that, despite many handicaps, Yeats's aesthetic background was not only sufficient to discover what suggestion did lie in the limited information available to him concerning Noh, but also sufficient for him to intuit much of what wasn't suggested.

The Spiritual Journey in the Poetry of Theodore Roethke

The Spiritual Journey in the Poetry of Theodore Roethke

Date: August 1971
Creator: Neiman, Marilyn M.
Description: If any interpretation of Theodore Roethke's poetry is to be meaningful, it must be made in light of his life. The sense of psychological guilt and spiritual alienation that began in childhood after his father's death was intensified in early adulthood by his struggles with periodic insanity. Consequently, by the time he reached middle age, Theodore Roethke was embroiled in an internal conflict that had been developing over a number of years, and the ordering of this inner chaos became the primary goal in his life, a goal which he sought through the introspection within his poetry.
