Oh, that's good!  And I'm definitely with you in thinking it was Intended -
er, intended.  I think every reference to Here Now vs. Nowhere is extremely
carefully used.  So of course, I'd never have noticed that.

I'm about to fly OT again here (I don't think Prufrock is at all unrelated
to F & H - but this really IS OT), with an old movie reference.  A group of
school friends went to see Woody Allen's Love and Death (?) when it came
out.  I think it was after the "hero" hanged himself, and then changed his
mind and decided to become a poet instead.  He wrote "I should have been a
pair of ragged claws scuttling across the floors of silent seas", then
threw it in the fire, saying it was too sentimental.  There was a rather
puzzled silence in the cinema, except for those of us who had studied (and,
incidentally, loved) Prufrock, who all roared with laughter!
