Description

The Waste Land by T S Eliot

A reading of the famous poem whilst exploring the streets of the City of London. Seeking out the streets and places that may have been an inspiration to the poet.

The walk will involve reading of parts of the poem at relevant spots in the City, particularly 'III The Fire Sermon' which uses street names and places in the Square Mile, all too familiar to T S Eliot.

Some insight and explanation of the poem, and it’s supposed meanings, will be offered and audience participation is welcome in furthering our enjoyment and understanding of this famous piece.

We will of course also gain from visiting some historic sites en route.

'I wandered, O my God, too much astray from Thee my stay,

in these days of my youth and I became to myself a waste land.'

Confessions of St Augustine - Book II
