Debate Meet Opens HALL ON ELIOT:
LeaT Teet Oe..s 'Wasteland' Called Poem of

!., _. )

By BURTON MICHAELS
T. S. Eliot's "The Wasteland"
is not a Christian poem, but a
poem of despair, Prof. Donald
Hall of the English department
said Wednesday.
The despair appears in the
poem's lack of progression: the
Wasteland is no better at the end
than at the beginning, he said.
Water represents "the hopeful
bringer of life" in the poem; it
purifies, and in drowning it al-

No Salvation
But the water in the Wasteland
brings no such salvation: it en-

the opening line, "April is the
cruelest month," is justified: it is
cruel because it makes men hope
in vain.
The final rain in the poem leaves
the Wasteland as arid and sterile
as it began. The fisher king is
still fishing, still hoping; and he
cannot win absolution and rebirth
through death, just as the Sibyl
who desired death could not have
it.
"Once you touch on one thing
you spread out to all things," Prof.
Hall said. Thus the ancient world,
is seen as sterile as the modern,
the upper classes as sterile as the
lower, through parallel passages
concerning each, he noted.
Another Example
Even if the narrator does not
passionately feel despair, "this is
another example of sterility, the
drying up of emotion. And there
is feeling in knowing oneself in-
