And a strange dream --

I dreamt that Hilda Doolittle was so overcome by the death of Ezra Pound that she turned to the dark arts to try to bring him back from the dead.

I stood in front of her and was all agog and amazed (it was a scene reminiscent of Millions when Damian meets the saints and would call them by their names and their years of birth and death) --

In my dream, I was saying something like "Hilda Doolittle late 19th century to early 20th century" --

She succeeded in reviving him but it was at the cost of the people around them -- they were dropping like flies all around her.

And then another literary character (I think it was the mom in Mary Poppins) was so inspired that she wanted to revive her dead dog.
