did you consider the last line of Prufrock:

They seem to imply redemption by seaweed wreathed sea-girls as well
Yes, I did. I see the fear there being of the human voices and I
would recite the line with "and we drown" just in a manner-of-fact tone.
To me, however, that fear consisted in the dread of waking up from a dream, a dream we call life, being cast back into reality and drowning.
In a Wonderland they lie,
Dreaming as the days go by,
Dreaming as the summers die:
Ever drifting down the stream --
Lingering in the golden dream --
Life, what is it but a dream?
B.t.w.: Did you know that the first letters of the last 21 lines of "Through the Looking Glass", nympholeptic paedophiliac Charles Dodgeson's masterpiece, spell out "ALICE PLEASANCE LIDDELL"?
