I like this parallel. I'm reminded of the concluding line of the couplet
of #129, the so-called "Lust Sonnet," in which the Sonneteer tells us
that no man can "shun the heaven that leads men to this hell" just like
Anthony.

Of course, there's also a (less romantic?) prevalent theory that Cleo is
based on Eliz I.

Sorry for the cold water,

Arthur
