...by the way if anyone is interested in looking at the RAPE OF THE LOCK, the first canto contains many references to a card game, which i thought was tarot... the poem refers to PAGES, DEATH, CHARIOT....but actually the game is called OMBRE.... there are further links formore info about this card game.  There are many beautiful and poetic descriptions and symbols of the four elements in the RAPE OF THE LOCK.
