I read "The Waste Land" and I thought it was clear and easy.
The narrator gives an example of being traumatised by W Wi by nearly dying because of lack of water. How he phantasizes about there being just a little bit of water but there is none.
He tries getting over the trauma by remembering time before, when he had a nice holiday at Berlin.
He tries asking a famous seer who uses tarot cards but she is a fraud.
Unluckily but realistically the trauma remains and the narrator just has to carry on.
I do not dare to put this on the main page because I think I must be wrong?
(Carry on with no hope nor purpose nor joy)
