It's amazing the kinds of connections formed in one's "random" reading. I read in Neil Gaiman's blog that Great Pan was dead, and thought I might have remembered it differently than he quoted it, so surfed a bit and found George Steiner -- whose book Grammars of Creation I currently am reading -- addressing Boston University in 1999 on the subject of the passage in question. There is no very close connection between Gaiman and Steiner, not as there is between, say Gaiman and Dave McKean; so there really is not much reason I should find them so close-by in "search-space" on this subject, except that my interests automatically place them there.
