Can someone help me? I need to write an essay on how history influenced a poem. The poem I'm writing about is Journey of the Magi by TS Eliot.

So far I'm thinking about writing about how World War I changed the world and how Eliot was all like "fuck this shit"

Can anyone help me write it a bit more eloquently?
>>
you should write how the history of eliot being a beta faggot retard who got cucked influenced it tbh
>>
>he thinks TS elliot wrote about WW1
>>
>>7231112
write about whitman writing leaves of grass, that'll suit your tastes I'm sure
>>
>>7231135
it has to be something from the book list/syllabus.

>>7231117
I don't care if he wrote about WW1 or not, I just need to twist things around enough to make it seem that way

>>7231116
That would only work if his history was a dominating factor in American history. Though I might since I'm probably gonna fail it anyway. Might as well have fun with it..
>>
>>7231174
nevermind, I'm writing about how it's a negative response to the invention of Ford's conveyor belt/assembly line and the automobile
>>
>>7231174
you just don't understand eliot, or poetry, or the context
you shouldn't be writing this and it's a real shame that you have to
If I were you I would just bullshit about something you read online, honestly. Just look up some sparknotes for pointers and write about what they say
>>

I dont think there's anything to understand about poetry, I feel like writing about it is just putting words into the author's mouth. There's no telling what influenced anybody to write anything, for all I know he was doing it as a meme for his time.

Like, for all I know he wrote the poem because he liked fucking with people who try to find meaning in things.

Its like that southpark episode when they write that butt poopoo store or whatever.

?? I don't understand what you're implying, but ok.

I've written poems and studied poetry/novels/whatever and in the end don't see the point of any of it. They should be a ride, imo, like you hop on, read it, and hop off. Nothing more. I think studying literature is one of the biggest wastes of time.

It's like an aspiring music producer studying Beethoven. Musically, he's ok. But he's no Brian Wilson.
>>
please respond :(
>>
Now I'm writing about how the poem was written in response to the introduction of the federal income tax.

Good idea?

k. Please refrain from posting if you're not going to help. It's not my fault that literature is pointless. Maybe if they didn't suck so bad at writing then it wouldn't be.

*Doesn't apply to Aldous Huxley, Hunter S Thompson, or Timothy Leary.
