Нам, людям с IQ 85, нет ничего приятнее, чем conceptual continuity. Покажи нам простую аллюзию и мы радуемся и смеёмся как малые дети. Вот и вот эта вот простая перекличка из первой части "The Waste Land" в предпоследнюю вызывает маленький, уютненький катарсисечек.

Madame Sosostris, famous clairvoyante,
Had a bad cold, nevertheless
Is known to be the wisest woman in Europe,
With a wicked pack of cards. Here, said she,
Is your card, the drowned Phoenician Sailor,
(Those are pearls that were his eyes. Look!)
Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card,
Which is blank, is something he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself:
One must be so careful these days. 

А поскольку у меня есть теперь полное собрание стихов и пьес товарища Э., я теперь уже знаю, что тема неправильных карт (как и мысль о том, что женщине в наши дни стоит проявлять осторожность) всплывёт в полный рост в "Sweeney Agonistes", из которого мне хочется начать выписывать просто всё с начала до конца, но руками лениво, а электронной версии я не нашёл.
