Noh, Fenollosa, Pound and Yeats—Have East and West Met?
THERE IS STILL a huge gap between East and West,1 and this essay will glance at its causes, by tracing the efforts of Fenollosa, Pound and Yeats to bring Noh drama to the West in works created some eighty years ago. I hope my analysis may provide some clues to the problem they faced and also a possible way to transcend it.
