I'm wondering if the offending E wuldn'thave een silent for Eliot,
so the word would have been proounced in/tol/ra/ble.

I seem to following in your feet. I didn't mean to ignore your
post--I didn't see it until I'd sent mine off. Thanks for pointing out
the problem with transmission of the accents. Here's my attempt to keep
the marks in line:
~ / ~ / ~ / ~ /
The intolerable shirt of flame [GJ]
~ ~ / ~ ~ / ~ /
The intolerable shirt of flame [MSK]
It is an interesting verse.
