interference? Suggestion of "Pale Fire"?
I don't see any justification in either the poem or the commentary for the suggestion that Aunt Maud would be more interested in the preservation of the manuscript of the poem than the life of JS. Surely the fact that Aunt Maud raised JS from an early age gives the key reason for the attempted warning - Aunt Maud's artistic interests notwithstanding.

If Shakespeare's verses about the "moon as an arrant thief," and the emergence of "Pale Fire" in "pal feur" or "tale feur," wouldn't Aunt Maud's warnings be more intent on preserving the manuscript from the clutches of a "lunatic" Kinbote, than indicative of Shade's dangerous crossing of a lane?
