" 'Or', that fearful demon of false dichotomy. " - Laurence Tribe

Both.

But damn, that answer admits to the dichotomy, even if negatively.
To say that lines are separate from the poem means you don't
understand them in the context of the poem. Not understanding
their context, by the way, doesn't mean there is or isn't an overall
context; it's possible he could be raving. (Thus admitting personally
to not understanding a whole bunch of it.)

But anyway...

For Prufrock alone I'd consider him a fucking genius innovator. That one's my
2nd fav with the Dry Salvages as my 3rd. My favorite (of course) is his Book of
Practical Cats. Smile

That said, after reading his stuff for awhile, I start to feel myself slipping into a
dissociative state and have to stop and take my meds. Smile And all the religious
stuff (even taken metaphorically) is too authoritarian for me. Still, he's a genius;
it's just that I'm much more of a William Carlos Williams kinda guy.

almost terse
