I know we were assigned to read the introduction starting on page 17 but I also read the very beginning of the introduction. On page 6 it refers to him enrolling as a graduate student in philosophy (interesting) at Harvard. Then a line or two down it says that he took courses which led him to create some of the images in the Wasteland. I know the poem contains several images like water and death but how do the courses relate? I could understand some type of religion class perhaps or maybe one or two philosophy classes but I am just curious what he is describing here. If anyone knows? 🙂 thank you!

p.s. If this is confusing I can try and re-word it!

ALSO, I wish we could just like things like fb haha
