I hope my comment isn't such common knowledge that it's useless, but I'm sure there's at least one person on this list who might find this interesting. Eliot's quotation in TWL contains one quote from the play (from 4.1.69) and the subtitle to the play. I had always thought that both sentences were quotations from the play, but "Hieronimo is mad againe" is the subtitle of the play, visible on copies like this 1615 quarto:
When I first read the play I spent a long time searching to find the context of both of Eliot's quotations, and was a little embarrassed to realize that the second allusion was the old subtitle. So Eliot's quotation really refers to this aspect of the play in general (Hieronimo's "madness"), not to one particular scene. My apologies if this was already painfully obvious. I found it helpful.
This is a fantastic version of the play, though. I especially like the "Glossary and Appendices" page. Thanks for sharing it.
