Valuable comments, Pete.

The savage and the brute is an aspect of human nature which, I learnt somewhere (or is it my fancy), which fascinated Eliot, and Sweeney could only be the projection of an aspect of the poet, and not a character external to him, even if based on some known model. Giving expression to Sweeney could be exorcising the demon in him. Maybe the journey from S to SA is the poet's own psychic journey. Well, just a thought.
