Here's a note from a former student, about a remark I made
in class on Prufrock, some time ago.
If what you suggest is true concerning Dante's conception of hell --
eventual passage out through the anus of the devil, then Prufrock must be
telling his story from within the rectal pouch of the transverse colon.
my original theory is correct -- Eliot had, indeed, at some point in his
been to Calgary.
