The name Laura too - - any Dante association there?

There do turn out to be links connecting Laura, Dante, peacocks and possibly
Can Grande. Unfortunately I won't have the time to pursue them for a while,
but for others who are interested I can refer you to a book by Mark Mirsky,
"Dante, Eros, & Kabbalah" - - particularly pages 166-167 and possibly ff.

EDNOTE. Could be. What re the classic noir film "Laura" (1944) based on, I
think, Very Caspary's novel?
