Hollow Men

The poem had such great meaning with hidden religious connotations, which
one has to read very carefully and several times to grasp. He is and
always be my favorite writer.

Hollow Man

Although the poem was written in 1925 its a good reflection of what we are
witnessing today in society. Political correctness is the standard not the
real feelings. Hollow Man is such a person. They stand for nothing and go
with the wind. No fabric in their character. I believe Mr Eliot was seeing
many such persons and saw a great loss to our society and that greatness
could not be achieved but such people. Great poem and gives much to think
about with its ending"not with a bang but a whimper". Is that what we want?

the hollow men

the sense of an overwhelming feeling of futile loneliness and loss is what
i am left with.the hollow men are all used up,depleted,forlorn,lost,devoid
of FEELING THE DESOLATION OF A WASTED LIFE.in a word the hollow man is in
HELL!
