Learning to Kneel

Carrie J. Preston

Columbia University Press

The first chapter uses the famous play, Hagoromo (The Feather Mantle), to explore noh dramaturgy and performance technique. Pound received a version of Hagoromo along with other draft translations of noh plays by Ernest Fenollosa and Hirata Kiichi, and it had a surprising impact on his theories of imagism and The Pisan Cantos.

Keywords:   Hagoromo, translation theory, collaboration, dance-poem recitals, The Cantos, fascism
