The Waste Land…

Filed under Uncategorized

I’d like to say that after going over the poem “The Waste Land” I understand the meaning but truthfully I don’t. I only know now that the poem seems to revolve around a relationship between and man and woman. But I was still left confused because T.S. Eliot’s poem is intertwined with another text from Shakespeare and Dante’s inferno. I don’t hate the poem because I don’t fully comprehend it because there are lines that I like and think I understand. But I still believe the poem is depressing and morbid.  The person seems to insist on withdrawing from society because he is disgusted by it.
