That makes two of us, because I'm not coming from there. Where did I write that I think this anecdote has some bearing on Eliot's sexual orientation? Because what I earlier posted was about Crawford reporting on a few incidents where Eliot seemed to get awfully upset about anyone hinting that there might be something personal about TWL. Regards, Rick Parker P.S. - Eliot later said, and wrote, more than once, that the poem _WAS_ personal. Eliot's widow (and editor) actually puts one quote about this on page 1 of the facsimile.
