Thanks for the advice Iain. No doubt it has helped to fine tune my reading list! I shall keep you posted with developments on quotations and literary illusions.

Amazon are selling a collection of plays which includes Pre Paradise. It takes a while to be delivered but its the only source I found (the Books page of the site gives details).

I reckon with TS Eliot you go a long way. Prufrock, Quartets and Waste Land.

I´m not sure that studying the bible references will reveal too much- I suspect Kane uses phrases she remembered to convey what she wanted to express, but the rest of the original text doesn´t reveal too much. She also uses devil-worshipper Alasteir Crowley!! But there are a number of on-line bibles which I found useful (just do a search via google or whatever).

Maybe Roland Barthes A Lovers Discourse is worth reading. It conveys the same sort of atmosphere to me

If you discover new references etc please let me know and I´ll update the Quotations page of the site.

I am currently doing my Masters thesis on 'Crave' and the its literary illusions. I am familiar with 'The Waste Land' and biblical influences, but am struggling to get a copy of Fassbinder's plays to start on that side. Also, I have just bought a copy of 'Love me or Kill me', 'In yer face theatre'and 'Waiting for Godot.' Are there any suggestions for further reading to explore literary allusions? Actually, come to think of it, what bible should I use? Good News or King James? Any help/ideas would be most appreciated.
