Bertrand Russell's nightmare
Line 376

B. C. Southam has this note for lines 371 - 376:

Bertrand Russell recalled that he had once told Eliot of a nightmare in which he had a vision of London as an unreal city, its inhabitants like hallucinations, its bridges collasping, its buildings passing into a mist - all of which, Russell said, Eliot put into the poem.

Southam, p. 190
