YMMV: The Waste Land
  • Nightmare Fuel: Rats crawling on the corpses of the Fisher King's relatives.
  • True Art Is Angsty: Of course, it was first published not long after World War One.
  • True Art Is Incomprehensible: In Modernism, this was somewhat the point - if you couldn't understand the multitude of references or read the bits in dead languages, the poem wasn't intended for you.
  • Wangst: As the page summary states, "It is mainly about how the world is hopelessly lost and how life cannot be regenerated." That set the tone for pretty much the entire Modernist movement.
