T.S. Eliot's The Hollow Men.

Created by Han Kim

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 THE KINGDOM

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
