8PtzgZ My brother suggested I would possibly like this blog. He was once
totally right. This put up actually made my day. You can not consider just
how a lot time I had spent for this info! Thank you!

I don't totally agree with the comment below this one. While it's true
that Elliot was often purposely obtuse, I'm not sure this poem is a mockery
as much as an addendum to the Wasteland. Clearly the title is meant to tie
the two together, but the content of Elliot's Wasteland seems to mirror the
content of this poem -- a sort of fractured metaphor for distance and
dissociation between people. Moreover, W.C.W seems to make a habit of
employing straightforward language to portray complex metaphor and imagery
-- hence his famous "red wheelbarrow" poem. Surely not all such poems of
his are conscious mockeries of modern poetry's (read: Elliot and Pound's)
often opaque use of language.

This is a spoof on TS Eliot's classic poem "The Wasteland." Eliot has a
very superfluous style and his poems are so complex they border on
incomprehensible. TS Eliot's poem starts "April is the cruelest month,"
and then Eliot leads off into all sorts of other stuff. WCW mocks this by
deliberately using very simple language to describe a very unpoetic and
prosaic moment, in direct contrast to Eliot's poem.

I believe this is an ironic sort of twist because of the name of the poem
and the meaning of the poem. April in this poem is about making new
families and teh title contradicts that.
