Sounds like all is really guessing on that question.
If one works by analogy and sees criminal observation as parallel
to artistic observation, then E & A parallels well with E & P.
What was it Pound said to Eliot about P.'s distracting things from
the front while E. smeaks in the back? Cultural team work?
If one is going to ascribe an equivalent identity to either E or A,
one needs to factor in appoplex and dropsy as indicating something
about whomever they represent.
