Any T.S. Eliot fans out there? Let me hear from ya!

I love T.S. Eliot, despite his misogynistic views and generally pedantic assholery, and "The Waste Land" is a showpiece of modern poetry. Imagine my delight, then, when I found this.
Check it out; here's a hint of what you'll see:

People on the Interneck sure love to fuck with kitties. Not literally, but...you get my drift.

Delia--you are very funny re. the TS Eliot.
I actually did my master's thesis partly on TS Eliot--Murder in the Cathedral, though, not The Wasteland.

Next week... Matty Boy does lolz Baudelaire, from his most famous work, Les Fleurs Du Mal or as it is translated into lolz, Smutty Thotz. I Gotz Dem.

Stay tuned.

Ha ha, that's fucking great. I'm with you on the Eliot - great poet, kind of a wanker.

There must be some weird cosmic thing going on since I reference him and matty boy's Charles in a post today. Oh shit, they're both coming back from beyond the grave to enslave humanity!

Pedantic assholery... bwahahahahaha!

"This is the way the world ends, this is the way the world ends, this is the way the world ends-

Not with a bark, but a whimpurrrrrr."

Karen--yup.

KGMom--I love his poetry, but as Randal said, he was a wanker. My theory is that he was just a closet queen, but I'm a little biased on that count....

Matty--bring it on!

Randal--Oh noes!

Fran--you're too kind.

GKL--brilliant--you could do it!

Fairlane--that is pure gold, man.

CDP said...

Excellent! I'd like a LOL interpretation of William Carlos Williams please.

dguzman said...

CDP--now there's a challenge!

How could I have missed this post????

LET us go then, you and I,
When the evening is spread out against the sky
Like a patient etherised upon a table;


One of my favorite poem openings.
