Re: C C T

Smehow I feel that when the poet is charged with emotions at things he feels really at a loss to explain or do anything for the situation's reversal, it is natural for him from his wide studies to draw from all sources. And, it is mostly not from the head but from the heart, the outpourings spring from. Incidentally, Eliot was a serious student of Sanskrit, a language though very terse as also detailed, and tough to master, has, believe you me, very wonderful solutions which, in my h.o. that modern mam will hardly ever be able to think of. It then becomes an act of creativity.

Re: Re: Re: Kabu

Ok, thank you Kabu. I'll then try to write harder things in easier ways in language. That will be a learning and progress for me too. Cheers!

Quite interesting, I do wonder if the poet had such a vivid view of the result of a reaction to his poem. I can visualize him morbidly adding and rearranging words that offered an entrance into his perceived journey, trusting that it would emotionally touch the spirit of those who would undertake to follow in the wake of his poetry.`

Re: Kabu

You are such an avid reader of my contributions that I feel i should have been able to write less complex ones. I'll sure keep you in mind next time. But I tend to get carried away, I'm disposed by temperament to find interest where comolexities are difficult to tackle. But then, for all your support Big thank youyour Teacher address I honour.

Re: Aba

I too enjoyed doing Eliot. Yes, there is that other angle of Vivien committed to mental hospital in. North London as one more reason for Elliot's finding his Grail. He studied Sanskrit and amazed he was at the shlokas and said that each one was fit to fill a full volume in philosophical thoughts. I intentionally did not mention details or else the write would have become too large to hold readers' interest. Thank you so much dear Presta for taking the time to read my voluminous articles. But then I do find you a very interested and a diligent thoughtful soul. You are thus my delight when you comment so penetratingly or rather incisively. Thank you ever so much, and me, a Blogit guru? You say so so I accept humbly while nursing a drink

Aba

I really enjoyed your analysis of this work, dear Aba. It is spot-on. You covered topics and parts of The Waste Land, in depth and succinct detail. I love how you explained the metaphors and symbolism for us. Elliot is said to have once mentioned something to the effect that the idea for this book/poem came to him because of his first marriage; something I find extremely interesting, as his first wife was mentally unstable and was committed to an institution for a time. So, in addition to all else, there is that added layer to consider, as Elliot searches for his personal grail. So well done. I just love it! Thank you, oh guru of Blogit.s,
