For Tuesday (10/24)

Yes, let us go then, back to Eliot’s “Waste Land,” like a patient etherized upon a table.  As you re-read the poem, think about the various motifs (zombies, time, wet/dry, polyglossia, etc.) that we located in “The Burial of the Dead.” Can you locate instances of these motifs in later sections of the poem?  How does the poem add to or develop these motifs?
