The Waste Land
I did a little research on T.S. Eliot's poem and found a few facts I thought everyone might find interesting. It was published in 1922, and is considered "one of the most important poems of the 20th century." Eliot's originally idea for the title was "He do the Police in Different Voices." He eventually decided to go with "The Waste Land" and apparently stressed the importance of the definite article "the" in the title. These were just a few little facts I found intriguing.
