H518: Literary Modernism and T. S. Eliot's "The Waste Land" in Splash Spring 2018 (Apr. 21, 2018)
Above all, uncertainty was the theme of the early 20th century. The introduction of Heisenberg's uncertainty principle, the development of Sigmund Freud's idea that psychology is dictated by an unknowable subconscious, and the onset of World War I were just a few events during this time that completely shattered the boundaries of both human violence and human knowledge. In this class, we will read T. S. Eliot's poem "The Waste Land" and examine the way it embodies the Modernist literary movement through the strange, disorienting, and unsettling ways that it experiments with the written form.
