Eliot recycles romance and the Grail legend in his modernist masterpiece The Waste Land. Influenced by Jessie Weston’s From Ritual to Romance, Eliot takes readers on a journey across the waste land of the modern world. In the concluding stanzas, he holds out hope of rebirth and healing, as his Fisher King sits, with ‘the arid plain’ behind him, fishing, asking the right question, and preparing to set his lands in order. Eliot’s published poem owes much to the editing work of Pound, whose changes can be seen in this annotated facsimile and transcript of Eliot’s original drafts.
