The Waste Land…

Posted at 1:03 am 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.

    Egzona: Sept. evaluation check

    mixed results. good on the Yeats poem. but most of these were written late (I’m not referring to the reposts). do try to grapple more with the works.
