Gerontion themes

Gerention is a dramatic monologue of an old man who reminisces about his
lost power to live and his last hope of spiritual rebirth which is the
symbol of sterility and paralysis. It is the most important poem me 1920
volume. The poem is interesting largely as a training ground for
the Waste Land. This poem foreshadowing the more sophisticated use me all
me them in The Waste Land. The title brings to mind other
literary old men as in the Dreams of gerontius by cardial Newman.
