    An interesting section of T.S. Eliot's "The Wasteland" is that headed "Death by Water," a section that has engendered some argument about its meaning and about whether or not the death of Phlebas is intended to be real or symbolic. The poem uses sound in an interesting way to draw ideas together and to create a musical lilt. In the first line, the repeated "f" sound carries over to the first word of line two, evoking the idea of death, the image of the sea, and a connection between the sea and...

    “Tuesday, 9 AM” by Denver Butson is a rather macabre description of various people so caught up in their own problems that they are unable to help anyone else. It seems to be a sort of metaphor for the different problem-solving strategies that people use to help deal with various issues that one may be facing.

    I once read somewhere that the title Sometimes a Great Notion, by Ken Kesey, was referring to the blues song, “Goodnight Irene”, in which the narrator contemplates suicide. Sometimes a Great Nation touches a lot on death, and suicide in particular.
