演題 “Yeats’s Transgressive Dancers”「越境するイェイツのダンサーたち」

Dancers and dancing populate the work of W. B. Yeats, across genres, from plays to poems to short fiction to critical and philosophical prose, and spanning his early Romantic-inflected work to late texts that push past Modernism in theme and form. This lecture will focus in particular on Yeats’s late dancers. They emerge from the aestheticism of the early work and the confessional modes of the middle period to become figures that are much more socially and aesthetically transgressive than is sometimes realised. They are also animated by the late philosophy outlined in the occult treatise A Vision, which stresses the always changing relationship between strictly opposing polarities rather than the poles themselves.
