A century after T. S. Eliot’s groundbreaking poem, Tim Dooley’s Notes on The Waste Land assembles a new "mosaic of fragments" from a walk by the Thames, a stalled train ride to Margate, and an imagined voyage from locked-down London to the frozen North. With the same length and structure as The Waste Land, Dooley’s poem enters into a critical conversation with the original, delving into Eliot’s sources to illuminate the stasis and turbulence of a new era. At times playful and parodic, elsewhere arrestingly serious, Notes on The Waste Land continually surprises the reader.
Artist Jock McFadyen’s luminous images of abandonment and Chris McCabe’s shrewd and entertaining commentary frame the poem adding "different voices" to the conversation.
