I'm going to butt in here (yeah, again) with this repeat of TSE:
and when the words are finally arranged in the right way ...
he may experience a moment of exhaustion, of appeasement,
of absolution, and of something very near annihilation,
which is in itself indescribable. And then he can say to the poem:
'Go away! Find a place for your self in a book--and don't expect
me to take any further interest in you.'
You could say that, until Eliot handled Pound's suggestions, the poem
was not arranged in the right way but I think that Eliot was done
with the exorcism right after Lausanne.
