The Wasteland.

Literature An anonymous source has produced a hyperlinked version of TS Eliot's The Waste Land, filled with definitions and links to other websites explaining allusions:
"The opening verses of 'The Hollow Men' use images of dryness very similarly to 'The Waste Land'. it does not represent simply death (which in Buddhist thought, is the supreme goal of Nirvana, only reached by the most enlightened beings), but a lack of real life, a dreadful, sterile limbo state devoid of redemption or spiritual meaning."
I know the feeling.
