Beckett, Yeats, and noh: ...but the clouds... as theatre of evocation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In ...but the clouds..., the ritualistic movements of M1 culminate in his conjuring of a woman who quotes from "The Tower," the poem in which W. B. Yeats, who was profoundly influenced by Japanese noh theatre, evokes a number of ghosts. In this study, I demonstrate that Beckett was influenced in his writing of ...but the clouds... both by the highly stylised mugen noh - the noh of dreams and phantoms - and Yeats's experience of noh.
