I think Sally posted Dorian's analysis, and it was called something 
like Polly & Tom, rather than F&H.  I was also remembering a fairly 
lengthy discussion of the ending quite a bit longer ago, and managed 
to find some of the posts at least.  The first one I had was dated 
18/5/2002, and the subject was FIRE AND HEMLOCK (the caps made it 
easy to spot and should help with the archives!).  I hope the 
archives go back that far...

This may seem like a total off-topic sweep, but it isn't, really. 
Ages ago, I *think* someone wrote here about _Middlemarch_ being a 
big favourite. I've just finished an essay on MM, and now I'm 
wondering if finding all kinds of resonances between it and F&H 
sounds totally and utterly mad?  Anyone who's read it got an opinion 
on this?
