The Waste Land (1)
Publication Date: August 24th, 2016
Chapter: The Twentieth Century
The Waste Land is miserable. By which I mean, it is steeped in misery. It opens by telling us that April is the cruellest month, which basically sums up the entire mood. Also, roughly 60% of the poem is just footnotes, so thanks for that, Eliot.
