Abstract

The article  analyses T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land (1922) to show how Modernist men often plunge into the wild waters of gender  and sexuality,  revealing a remarkable degree  of anxiety, only rarely accounted for by more traditional critical approaches. The Waste Land can be perceived as an expression of male hysteria and, the author argues, hysteria is never far from aberrant sexualities and unruly desires.
