A Modern Eve

The Typist in T.S. Eliot’s The Waste Land

Revealing the mythic layer that unifies one of the greatest poem ever written, as the dark Adam of egoist modernity assaults the typist as Eve, and as all women.

Meet the Satans of Milton and Baudelaire, the Satanic hero of Romanticism, and Mephistopheles. The poem also shows how the poetry and music of the poet-songstress Sappho, of very ancient origin, is transported to 1920s London, site of the Roman Londinium. See the carbuncle gem in Magnus Martyr, how that relates to Eliot’s battle with Nietzsche and his superman, the new man of the future, and the world that creates for the typist.
