T S Eliot – The Waste Land in the City

T S Eliot (an American) certainly identified and had a close affinity with the City of London, he worked there for nine years. Whilst doing so he composed and published The Waste Land. The poem reflects his knowledge of the streets, and particularly identifying with the churches. Also acknowledging the presence of others through dialogue and monologue, identifying with and reflecting on the fracture and dislocation of society after WWI. Eliot also was much drawn to the River Thames, possibly associating this great force of water with that of his home town of St Louis, Missouri, and cherishing it as a Londoner.
