V. Goldsmith, the song in The Vicar of Wakefield.

Commentator's note

Eliot means compare:

Part III, line 253

253) When lovely woman stoops to folly and
254) Paces about her room again, alone,
255) She smooths her hair with automatic hand,
256) And puts a record on the gramophone.

To the song in Chapter 24 of Oliver Goldsmith's The Vicar of Wakefield
