The Hollow Men The Hollow Men Presentation Transcript

  • The Hollow Men T.S. Eliot
  • We are the men hollow
  • We are the stuffed men
  • Leaning together Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!
  • Our dried voices, when We whisper together Are quiet and meaningless
  • As wind in dry grass In our dry cellar
  • Shape without form, Shade without colour ,
  • Paralysed force , gesture without motion;
  • With direct eyes , to death’s other K ingdom Those who have crossed
  • Remember us – if at all – not as lost Violent souls, but only As The hollow men The stuffed men.
  • Eyes I dare not meet in dreams In death’s dream kingdom
  • These do not appear: There, the eyes are Sunlight on a broken column
  • There, is a tree swinging And voices are In the wind’s singing More d i s t a n t and more solemn Than a fading star
  • Let me be no nearer In death’s dream kingdom
  • Let me also wear Such deliberate disguises
  • Rat’s coat, crowskin, crossed staves In a field Behaving as the wind behaves
  • No nearer – Not that final meeting In the twilight kingdom
  • This is the dead land This is the cactus land
  • Here the stone images Are raised , here they receive The supplication of a dead man’s hand UNDER THE TWINKLE OF A FADING STAR.
  • Is it like this In death’s other kingdom
  • Waking alone At the hour when we are Trembling with tenderness Lips that would kiss Form prayers to broken stone
  • The are not here There are no here eyes eyes
  • In this valley of dying stars In this hollow valley
  • In this last of meeting places We grope together And avoid speech Gathered on this beach of the tumid river
  • Sightless, unless
  • The eyes REAPPEAR As the perpetual star
  • Multifoliate rose Of death’s twilight kingdom The hope only Of empty men.
  • Here we go round the prickly pear Prickly pear prickly pear Here we go round the prickly pear At five o’clock in the morning
  • Between the idea And the reality
  • Between the motion And the act FALLS THE SHADOW FOR THINE IS THE KINGDOM
  • Between the conception And the creation FALLS THE SHADOW Life is very long
  • Between the desire And the spasm Between the potency Between the essence And the descent FALLS THE SHADOW And the Existence
  • For Thine is Life is For Thine is the
  • This is the way the world ends This is the way the world ends This is the way the world ends
  • Not with a bang but a whimper THE END
