POEM MAP ENDNOTES SOURCES ABOUT

This site includes a hypertext version of The Waste Land by T. S. Eliot and supporting materials including annotations, a map of locations in the poem, and links to full texts for many of Eliot's sources. Several hypertext versions of The Waste Land already exist. This site aims to provide detailed annotations with minimal disruption to the appearance of the poem itself.

Two kinds of annotations are included in the poem:

  1. Supplementary information about people, places, and phrases in the poem, accessed via links in the text. Links are unmarked, but most people names and place names and foreign language bits and the like have additional info available. Links turn blue on mouseover.
  2. Eliot's (often enigmatic) annotations to the text, which can be accessed by clicking the blue line numbers.
