In order to get back to Eliot after last week's digressions, I thought I'd
send our listmembers reaching back for their Collected Essays and Selected
Prose. I'm looking for a passage where Eliot writes that a particular word
has become 'the most debased coin in the currency of the language'. Any idea
where this comes from?
I'm not 100% sure it's Eliot. A search on Google gives one reference to a
spoof on Oscar Wilde, but I hadn't read that text before.
