Dear Rick, I found the articles valuable as well. I had read about Eliot's 
piece on Marie Lloyd but never came across it. Many thanks! Diana

Dear Marva,

My website has a number of early essays by Eliot that may interest you.

In The Waste Land Eliot wrote a note about Hesse's essay about The
Brothers Karamasov.  The quote from the essay he used doesn't fit into
the poem as well as the sentences just before it (I think he was
having a bit of fun.)  See the last paragraph in particular. It has an
opinion by Hesse on impersonality in writing.
