NOTES frame

This area serves 2 purposes:

  1. It holds the text for Eliot's notes, allusions, my commentary, etc. when the links to the right of the lines in the poem are selected.

  2. It also holds the navigation menu or help menu when the appropriate link in the lower right frame (HELP frame) is selected (except if you select "navigate by line" the links will appear in the DEFINTIONS frame instead.)

Another way of navigating the poem without using the scroll bar or the navigation menu is to select the numbered link to the left of the lines in the poem. That should cause that line to move to the top of the poem window. If you select the "v" link to the left of the numbered link when the line is at the top of the display then the top line will be moved down a few lines.

Example:

  1. Please select this link here. That should move line 30 to the top of the POEM frame.
  2. Now, in the POEM frame select the "v" link to the left of the number 30 appearing at the top of the frame. That should move line 30 down and line 25 should be at the top of the frame.
  3. Next select the link numbered "30." That line should now move back to the top of the POEM frame.

No harm will come selecting any "v" link when it is not on the top line but it may not do what you expect.
