The Mind of Your English Teacher: a (somewhat) academic blog about pop culture

The hypertext version of T.S. Eliot's "The Hollow Men" can be found HERE. I urge you not to think of this as the correct version/interpretation! This obviously makes connections to Eliot's allusions that we miss, but it doesn't make out ideas about the poem any less solid. In fact, if Eliot has accomplished his goal (remember the "objective correlative"?) our interpretation should be essential the same with or without the allegorical understanding. It is pretty cool to see how smart he is though!
