Dear Nancy and all,
[log in to unmask] type="cite">What time you do have in mind when this wasn't so?I am not clear about what point is being made. Why are you "commemorating" Eliot's pain--especially since it was an apparently very personal psychoneurosis (his own account, not mine--"aboulia," emotional not mental, etc., see letters) in a time when very terrible death and sorrow is occuring to thousands?
I'm glad you don't think it fully inappropriate. It isn't, at all, especially in this forum. Without the optional testimony of sorrow that doesn't make the news, "I'm sure" some people might think that pain forced into public is the only pain that matters. Since when are sorrows in competition?I'm sure this will produce a mass fit, but it seems a somewhat inappropriate time for such prompting.
PS Shall I say I am sure you'll call this a fit? I'd rather think more highly of you than to say (or think) so.
