This would have been in autumn 1932, when TSE sailed to the US to deliver the Norton Lectures (1932-33); that same year Yeats visited the US to be present at the opening of one of his plays in New York. It was an uneasy meeting, over a formal dinner (I think it might have been at Wellesley, but have to check on that). WBY sat next to TSE but was engaged in conversation with a young woman on the side away from TSE. He then turned to TSE and said that he and the lady had been discussing the poetry of TSE, and asked what TSE thought about the subject. TSE turned his place card to WBY to identify himself. -- best, -- Jim LoucksNow that's what I call body language!
