T.S Eliot's Poetry

His real name is Thomas Sterne Eliot, he was born on September 26, 1888, in St. Louis, Missouri, United States. He died onJanuary 4, 1965, in Kensington, London, United Kingdom. His most popular Poems are: The Waste Land, The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, and more
In many of T.S Eliot's poems he interprets God, and his catholic religion. This shows a lot in his poem called 'Ash Wednesday'.
He also has any poems in french, one of the more popular poems is 'Le Directeur' made in 1920 but most of his poems are in the French language
I think in all of T.S Eliot's poems, he is trying to make point. He wants people to see the good and bad things happening around the world. Eliot asserted that poetry must present 'objective correlatives' or objects and events that will correspond to certain emotions in the reader's experience
The poem I chose from T.S Eliot to analyze is called 'Morning at the Window'. This poem was written in 1920. It relates to the time period because the picture is where people lead miserable lives. The speaker is at the window. He may be a visitor of a certain house in the area where poor people live. This poem really spoke to me because no body really knows how housemaids were treated back then and even now, and I think we should make change and this should be shown more.
This is the poem I created called " But What They Didn't Know"
I think from reading multiple poems by T.S Eliot, I learnt a lot about writing imagery poems and now I personally think those are my favourite. I get a better understanding of what the poets is getting at when I read imagery poems. I have also become a lot more creative when writing poems, I have no longer been stumped to write a poem.
