TS Eliot Series

T.S. Eliot’s great modernist poem, "The Waste Land", is more meaningful to me now than when I was a young English major and did whole semester on it. The editors of The Norton Anthology of English Literature describe the poem's meaning as "spiritual dryness, about the kind of existence in which no regenerating belief gives significance and value to men's daily activities, sex brings no fruitfulness, and death heralds no resurrection." Cheerful subject matter, no? But eternally relevant.
