07. Dead Poets Society 3: The Waste Land with Matthew Hollis

Sat 1 Jul 2023
10:00am - 11:00am | Burgage Hall - Event has now taken place.

In a remarkable feat of biography, Matthew Hollis reconstructs the intellectual creation of Eliot’s 1922 masterpiece, and brings the material reality of its charged times vividly to life. Presenting a mosaic of historical fragments, diaries, dynamic literary criticism and illuminating new research, he reveals the cultural and personal trauma that forged The Waste Land through the lives of its protagonists – of Ezra Pound, who edited it; of Vivien Eliot, who sustained it; and of T. S. Eliot himself, whose private torment is woven into the seams of the work.
