    T. S. Eliot used myths in a most extraordinary fashion, interweaving various myths as both small pieces of a larger puzzle and as a frame for that puzzle. Each myth mentioned or alluded to in "The Waste Land" adds to the overall picture, yet none typify the poem as much as the myth of Philomela.

    Hermeneutics of Time in T. S. Eliot's The Waste Land Thomas E.

T.S. Eliot drew his inspiration not only from the literature of orthodox Christian mysticism and from a variety of Hindu and Buddhist sources, but also from the literature of the occult, and from several unexpected and so far unacknowledged sources such as the "mystical" symbolism of Shakespeare's later plays and the visionary poetry of Rudyard.
