I'm wondering if the offending E wuldn'thave een silent for Eliot,
so the word would have been proounced in/tol/ra/ble.

Dear Greg,
    I seem to following in your feet.  I didn't mean to ignore your
post--I didn't see it until I'd sent mine off.   Thanks for pointing out
the problem with transmission of the accents.  Here's my attempt to keep
the marks in line:

    ~    /  ~  /  ~   /    ~     /
    The intolerable shirt of flame    [GJ]
    ~    ~  /  ~  ~   /    ~     /
    The intolerable shirt of flame     [MSK]

It is an interesting verse.
