I read a lot of poems as an English major back in the day Not many have stuck with me over the years but The Waste Land is one of them TS Eliot s lamentation of the spiritual drought in our day the waste land of our Western society lightened by a few fleeting glimpses of hope It s fragmented haunting laden with symbolism and allusions and utterly brilliant A diverse cast of characters take turns narrating the poem or having their conversations overheard by the narrator including a Lithuanian countess reminiscing about her childhood and life I read much of the night and go south in the winter a prophetic voice like Ezekiel examining the barrenness of civilization Son of man You cannot say or guess for you know only A heap of broken images where the sun beats And the dead tree gives no shelter Madame Sosostris a famous but fake clairvoyant telling a fortune with tarot cards I do not find the Hanged Man Fear death by water I see crowds of people walking round in a ring Thank you a bored woman of leisure talking to her husband who answers in his mind What are you thinking of What thinking What I never know what you are thinking Think I think we are in rats alley Where the dead men lost their bones Two women talking in a bar about sex and abortion Now Albert s coming back make yourself a bit smart He ll want to know what you done with that money he gave you To get yourself some teeth and many Those are just the main ones in the first two of five sections Symbols of drought and fertility spiritual waste and renewal surface and resurface showing a different facet each time I d forgotten that the Holy Grail cup and Holy Lance spear doubled as a nifty set of femalemale sexual symbolsThis is a poem that deserves to be read taken apart and studied and then simply read again and appreciatedThese fragments I have shored against my ruinsI still have my 2600 page The Norton Anthology of English Literature which has extensive analysis and footnotes It also has my helpful handwritten margin notes from 30 years ago written in the most amazingly lovely minuscule handwriting imaginable seriously the letters are about a half a millimeter high that I could never in a million years recreate now
