The Waste Land by T.S.Eliot. It is perhaps Eliots most famous piece, this controversial poem details the journey of the human soul searching for redemption. The Fisher King is the central character in The Waste Land.Traditionally, the impotence or death of the Fisher King brought unhappiness and famine. Eliot saw the Fisher King as symbolic of humanity, robbed of its sexual potency in the modern world and connected to the meaninglessness of urban existence. But the Fisher King also stands in for Christ and other religious figures associated with divine resurrection and rebirth. The speaker of What the Thunder Said fishes from the banks of the Thames toward the end of the poem as the thunder sounds Hindu chants into the air.

\"The Man In The Mirror\" When you get what you want in your struggle for self and the world makes you king for a day Just go to the mirror and look at yourself and see what that man has to say For it isn\'t your father or mother or wife whose judgement upon you must pass The fellow whose verdict counts most in your life is the one staring back from the glass Some people may think you\'re a straight shootin\' chum and call you a wonderful guy But the man in the glass says you\'re only a bum if you can\'t look him straight in the eye You can fool the whole world down the pathways of life and get pats on your back as you pass But your final reward will be heartaches and tears if you\'ve cheated the man in the glass He\'s the fellow to please, never mind the rest for he\'s with you clear to the end And you\'ve passed your most dangerous, difficult test if the man in the glass is your friend

There are two or three poems i use to remember vividly, one is solitary reaper, \" Behold her, Single in the field, yon solitary highland lass, reaping and singing by herself \" and the other poem \" I wandered lonely as a cloud , That floats on high o\'er vales and hills, when all all at once i saw a crowd , A host of golden daffodils, both by my favourite poet William Words worth and Alfred Tennysons poem \" Ring out wild bells, \" Ring out wild bells, to the wild sky, the flying cloud, the frosty night, The year is dying in the night , Ring out wild bells and let him die, a christmas poem by the great poet who welcome the new year. these three poems i like the most and remember quite often but Daffodilis i always touches me. it is a great and beautiful poem indeed.
