Just to build a canalbetween stream of consciousness and the primitive
I would offer the following rivers of which Eliot was VERY conscious
and which help to identify the core character of The Hollow Men:

Styx - Classical
Acheron - Dante (a branch of the Styx)
Thames and Congo - Conrad
Thanes and the tumid river and the
river with cargo of dead negrtos - Eliot

Consider the souls with no coins under their tongues
Consider the Christian equivalent.
