Presented his framework, what do you imagine Eliot's poem ‘The Empty Men' is all about?
The Empty Men
We are the hollow males
We are the stuffed men
Headpiece stuffed with straw. Alas!
Our dried up voices, once
We whisper together
Will be quiet and meaningless
Because wind in dry turf
Or rats' feet over broken goblet
In our dry out cellar
Condition without contact form, shade without colour,
Paralysed force, motion without action;
Those who have entered
With direct eyes, to death's other Kingdom
Remember us-if at all-not as lost
Chaotic souls, yet only
As the empty men
The stuffed males.
The Empty Men Brief summary
The poem is told about by among the " Hollowed out Men. "
In the initial section of the poem, several Hollow Guys are leaning together just like scarecrows. Almost everything about them can be as dry like a desert, which include their voices and their physiques. Everything there is a saying and do can be meaningless. They exist in a state of limbo – caught among life and death. They are not alive, nor could they be dead. In Greek mythology, when people pass away they must mix the River Styx in Heaven or perhaps Hell. The Hollow Mankind has not entered over the Lake Styx to create it to either Bliss or Terrible. They always live on globe but their lives are hollow and meaningless.
