Yeah, we could all quit writing!
This morning I figured that I wasn't awake enough to do justice to
Steve Morse's enfants as pun post or Federica's excellent reply to my
"what's the connection" post. Rick Seddon has done some great things
in the past so I thought I would emulate two of them. I sent in what
I though was a pretty good description from Brooker and Bentley of
what was going on in these TWL lines. Now I'm going to hide out in
shame under my own rock for sending in the post in the first place.
Oh, yes. Steve, I don't think that the line was a pun. My French
isn't good enough to tell if it could be but the allusion seems to
strong and serious for Eliot to pun on it. Pat Sloane may have some
different ideas about TSE punning on such things.
