T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land and Other Selected Poems: An Indictment of Post-War Generation and a Quest for Redemption

Muhammad Nurul Islam

World War I, spanning 1914-1918, brings about massive changes in human life devastating the existing structure of the worldinner and outerhelping emerge a generation with dissonant realities and socio-psychic maladies. T. S. Eliot, a top-ranking writer and poet among the founders of Modernism in England as well as in Europe, portrays a generation that engrosses on the problems they inherit. He commences with an individual psyche, spotlights the society and concludes diagnosing the wretched condition of the Europeans or the people of the world as a whole. His poems are finely interwoven not only to detect the inner troubles of post-war generation but also to postulate a possible exit for mankind in future. Yet the way the poet characterizes the society and envisions a particular solution demands much debate among the critics. Centering this rationale, this paper attempts to analyze post-war life to dissect its maladies, and re-evaluate the concept of redemption that Eliot puts forward through his poems.
