Dear James,

I suppose you already found Carol Sorgenfrei's book Unspeakable Acts,  
and don't miss Steven Clark's dissertation.  He changed his name to  
Steven Ridgely, but I assume that the diss will still be filed under  
Steven Clark.

Clark, Steven James. ‘The Poetics of Terayama Shûji’, PhD Thesis,  
Yale University (2005).

There are a few other sources:

Courdy, Keiko. ‘Antonin Artaud’s influence on Terayama Shûji’, in  
Samuel L. Leiter and Stanca Scholz-Cionca (eds.) Japanese Theatre and  
the International Stage (Leiden: Brill, 2000), 255-268.

Terayama Shûji. ‘Inugami: The Dog God’, trans. and intro. Carol  
Fisher Sorgenfrei Asian Theatre Journal 11, 2 (1994): 163-190.

——————. Gogatsu no Shi: Poems of May, trans. David A. Schmidt and  
Fusae Ekida (Lewiston, NY: Edwin Mellen Press, 1998), 148.

Maybe Steve himself can chime in here if I have missed something now  
that I have done work of shameless promotion for him.
