UNDERRATED PHRASES FROM T.S. ELIOT'S "THE WASTE LAND"
This is just a way for me to avoid the paper I'm writing on it
- •"In which sad light a carvèd dolphin swam"Of all the lines Ezra Pound cut out, he let Eliot keep this. Completely unnecessary, I love it
- •"Twit twit twit / Jug jug jug jug jug jug"This is supposed to be a nightingale's song, but like why
- •"the young man carbuncular""Carbuncular" means pimply. Use this on ur enemies
- •"la la"¯\_(ツ)_/¯
- •"And bats with baby faces in the violet light / Whistled, and beat their wings / And crawled head downward down a blackened wall"Let's just take a moment to appreciate how terrifying this is
- •"These fragments I have shored against my ruins"Okay this is not underrated, but I'm just putting it on here because it's so good, and if you at any point were forced to read The Waste Land and hated it, I highly recommend going back with an open mind. Jug jug to you!
