Lecture 12 - T.S. Eliot (cont.)
In this lecture, Professor Hammer considers the psycho-sexual aspects of T.S. Eliot's, The Waste Land. The landscape of the poem is described and its key figures introduced. Particular emphasis is placed on couples and scenes of dialogue with aspects of romantic or sexual distress. At the lecture's conclusion, a broad summation of the individual units of the poem is presented, and the editing process, in particular Ezra Pound's contributions, is reflected upon.
