Summary

"First published in 1925, T.S. Eliot's poem, The Hollow Men, eerily fore-shadows the genocide, war, and spiritual emptiness of the twentieth century. The semi-abstract imagery accompanying the poem attempts to reflect the emotions of emptiness, loss and anger that pervade."--Artists' statement.
