<<Though my Carroll & Graf edition of the novel is dated 1994, it shows
that Block copyrighted the book in 1969. So, help me out. Doesn't
copyright cover the title too? Or is it a matter of the DT Estate
owning that phrase from the poem, and so they can authorize a second use
of it?>>

You cannot copyright the title of a book - and neither can you copyright
a line from a poem.
