History in the Waste Land

  1. 1. Men make their own history, but they do not make it as they please; they do not make itunder self-selected circumstances, but under circumstances existing already, given andtransmitted from the past. ~ Karl Marx, The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte (1852)What are the roots that clutch, what branches growOut of this stony rubbish? Son of man,You cannot say, or guess, for you know onlyA heap of broken images. . . . ~ T. S. Eliot, The Waste Land (1922)What I really want to do is to be able to change the lives of a group of people with thesame material that they deal with every day. ~ Vik Muniz, Waste Land (2008)
