>(The correct parallel to "Twelve Noon" is of course "Twelve
>Midnight", and has always been.)

asserts Tom Bishop in parenthesis.  But let me remind Tom that Jonson
uses the phrase "the noon of night" in Sejanus.  It is also used by
Herrick in Hesperides.  Drayton, Man in the Moon, uses the phrase
"Nighted Noone." You can check these in the OED sb. 4, 4b. So I suppose
"twelve of night" is possible, and might be abbreviated (by Gabriel's
metaphor-wielding poet) as "twelve night."  Unfortunately, I cannot find
an example.

Yours, Bill Godshalk

My apologies to John Velz.  I took his - "Note that such a rendering of
the name puts "Feste" in a class with "Speed" in TGV." - to have
something to do with the French train of the same name.  The conjunction
of "class," "speed," and "TGV" was irresistible.  I was confused - but
for a joyful moment.  It has been a long weekend...

Cheers,
