The Chinese written character as a medium for poetry a critical edition by Ernest Fenollosa ( Book )
84 editions published between 1919 and 2011 in 7 languages and held by 1,164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
First published in 1919 by Ezra Pound, Ernest Fenollosa's essay on the Chinese written language has become one of the most often quoted statements in the history of American poetics. As edited by Pound, it presents a powerful conception of language that continues to shape our poetic and stylistic preferences: the idea that poems consist primarily of images; the idea that the sentence form with active verb mirrors relations of natural force. But previous editions of the essay represent Pound's understanding--it is fair to say, his appropriation--of the text. Fenollosa's manuscripts, in the Beinecke Library of Yale University, allow us to see this essay in a different light, as a document of early, sustained cultural interchange between North Americaand East Asia.Pound's editing of the essay obscured two important features, here restored to view: Fenollosa's encounter with Tendai Buddhism and Buddhist ontology, and his concern with the dimension of sound in Chinese poetry.This book is the definitive critical edition of Fenollosa's important work. After a substantial Introduction, the text as edited by Pound is presented, together with his notes and plates. At the heart of the edition is the first full publication of the essay as Fenollosa wrote it, accompanied by the many diagrams, characters, and notes Fenollosa (and Pound) scrawled on the verso pages. Pound's deletions, insertions, and alterations to Fenollosa's sometimes ornate prose are meticulously captured, enabling readers to follow the quasi-dialogue between Fenollosa and his posthumous editor. Earlier drafts and related talks reveal the developmentof Fenollosa's ideas about culture, poetry, and translation. Copious multilingual annotation is an important feature of the edition.This masterfully edited book will be an essential resource for scholars and poets and a starting point for a renewed discussion of the multiple sources of American modernist poetry
The classic Noh theatre of Japan by Ernest Fenollosa ( Book )
21 editions published between 1959 and 1977 in English and held by 995 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Fifteen of the most celebrated plays of the Noh theatre repertory are here given in their entirety, and five more are presented in synopsis. These translations are embedded in a critical discussion of the Noh theatre, its history and place in the court life of Japan, a description of the stage on which it is played, its music, costumes, and masks, and the dance, which usually is the emotional high point in the performance."--
