Saturday's visit to Turner Contemporary means I am still a bit focused on The Waste Land, this is mostly due to trying to read it again, failing to understand it again and trying to form a mental picture of Eliot in Margate just after WW1, just after the scenic railway opened.
Perhaps if I quote Eliot talking about art it will help you understand my confusion a bit.
“The only way of expressing emotion in the form of art is by finding an "objective correlative"; in other words, a set of objects, a situation, a chain of events which shall be the formula for that particular emotion; such that when the external facts, which must terminate in sensory experience, are given, the emotion is immediately evoked.”
See what I mean? Sounds deep and meaningless to me, anyone know what it means?
The pictures are Ramsgate 1934
I suppose the time between the world wars fascinates me for all sorts of reasons particularly the rapid social and artistic changes that I think were the result of WW1.
