(cont.)

Even accepting this basic reading, I can't find a place for the "formal =
criticism" inserted here. These are some of the questions that I make to =
myself:
1. The structure of Burnt Norton II is exactly similar to that of East =
Coker II. Even Dry Salvages II, with the initial sextina followed by the =
"more direct", less "periphrastic" poem about the patterns of time, =
bears strong similarities with the other two "second sections". (I think =
Little Gidding II is a different case.) What's the point of doing that? =
What is Eliot trying to show?
2. What is the sense of the criticism at the beginning of East Coker II =
(b)?
3. How to interpret the statement "The poetry does not matter"? Which =
"poetry" does not matter? To whom? In which sense?
4. There seems to be two different "voices" (Argh!!! But I don't have a =
better word...) playing in all these "second sections". The second voice =
speaks in the same "tone" as that one speaking in all "first sections" =
(Little Gidding not excepted). Who is this "person"?

A Happy New Year for you as well, JP, and for everybody in the list. It =
was good to know you all. And don't think I am that lazy, Gunnar. Even =
if I am...

Cheers.
