   I certainly don't think it's a "mistake", as TSE was a master of grammar.
I do think it's poetic license -- "Let us go then, you and I" sounds a lot
better than "Let us go then, you and me".
==============================================================
"You and I" suggests the speaker is conscious of himself
as a subject.  -You and me- would suggest otherwise -- the
speaker as an object.

Cheers,
Peter.
