About this map: 

T.S. Eliot is a poet of place, and modernist displacement. His landmark poem, The Waste Land, is rife with still viewable references within and around London. The poet clerked for Lloyd's Bank in the financial center of London known as the City from 1917 to 1922; by retracing his footsteps, we can examine the physical locations that inspired Eliot nearly a century ago. Nearly all historical references in this tour rely on the 1923 London Baedeker, kindly given me by Mark Storey. I deeply appreciate the support of Ron Schuchard, Georgia Shreeve, Wim Van-Mierlo, Claire Jenkins, Ron Bush, Ann Dumas, John Haffenden and Medb Sichko. In loving memory of Anna-Lisa Froman.for a full text of The Waste Land, click here:http://www.bartleby.com/201/1.htmlT.S.
