          T. S. Eliot was a conscious poet who had thought long and deep about the mysteries of his own art. He marks a complete break from the 19th-century tradition. He abandoned the loving theory that all art is principally an appearance of the artist’s character. His Waste Land (1922) is a most important poem. It is regarded a highly condensed epic of the modern age. The Waste Land is an interwar bring down to earth and depression set forward by wide-ranging sequences of descriptions constructed upon man’s bookish and civilizing history. The Waste Land is a city populated by those for whom current existence provides only a pile of broken images and “fear in a handful of dust” it is a civilization dying of spiritual thought
