Sharing Poetry: T.S. Eliot, "The Hollow Men"


T. S. Eliot The Hollow Men’ A Penny for the Old Guy’

A penny for the Old Guy

We are the hollow men
We are the stuffed men
Leaning together
Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!
Our dried voices, when

“Why don’t I hear more champions of literary culture discussing the excellent work that local libraries do? A lot of readers without access to indie or chain bookstores, Internet access or a credit card to shop online, do have a branch library nearby with knowledgeable staff. The content is all free and you still get the coveted book smell. Amazon and independent bookstores are not the only options readers have. Indeed this doesn’t have to be a zero-sum game at all. One can appreciate brick-and-mortar chains, indie shops, local libraries, Amazon and the online shops on favorite independent spaces.”
