Eliot's The Waste Land is a notoriously difficult text to understand. Examining the text for Grail mythology in the context of a post-war Europe on top of attempting basic comprehension be very overwhelming. As such, annotations of the text and how its language is tied to the Arthurian legend of the Fisher King's waste land and the quest for the Holy Grail are here to elucidate the other pages on the site. Hopefully they can help to foster an understanding of the foundational references to the Grail quest and the waste land. The Evernote annotations go through the text casually, highlighting points of interest and connections between the poem and the legends, while the Thinglink annotations below provide more of a comprehensive explanation into those links, and how/why they exist! Scroll over the red circles to view the commentary. Enjoy!
