Two points.

First, Peter writes: "Eliot's note
> about Baudelaire's sneaking into Christianity by
> the back door."

Where might this note be found? Does Eliot say Baudelaire 'snuck into
Christianity by the back door'?

Second, Carol:
"Kurtz is
dead (in Marlow's narrative)". Kurtz is dead by the time Marlow relates the
story. In his narrative, however, Kurtz is alive almost until the end.

Yours, Jennifer
