I like this suggestion. Often when I read "you" in an Eliot poem it
seems to me he is addressing the reader. Certainly he is in Portrait of
a Lady (you have the scene arrange itself, as it will seem to do), in
"hypocrite lecteur, mon frere," etc., in Gerontion (I would meet you
upon this honestly), and many others.
