In conclusion, Thomas Stearns Eliot was a well-known poet influenced by both political and personal events whose famous modernist poems “The Hollow Men” and “The Waste Land” led him to fame because of their themes that reflected the broken society Eliot lived in after WWI. In my opinion, T.S. Eliot’s message is that society should never be this “dead” and “hollow,” and that we should never let this kind of depression dominate society once again. We should appreciate the fact that today, in some parts of the world, we live a “happy” life, but at the same time, notice that even though we are in peace there is still some places in the world where the desire to live is miniscule and that we should fix it or prevent it.
