The Malfunctioning TARDIS

From a Sept. 17, 2010, post of Peter J. Cameron
that was linked to here at 8 AM ET today

In a recurring motif in the second Quartet, “East Coker”, Eliot says,

Time future and time past
Are both somehow contained in time present

and, in “Little Gidding”,

… to apprehend
The point of intersection of the timeless
With time, is an occupation for the saint

This should read instead…

In a recurring motif in the first Quartet, “Burnt Norton”, Eliot says,

Time present and time past
Are both perhaps present in time future
And time future contained in time past

and, in “The Dry Salvages”,

… to apprehend
The point of intersection of the timeless
With time, is an occupation for the saint
