Moving from T. S. Eliot's early poems to his later work does not represent a shift from atheistic to religious poetry, but from one scriptural model to another. In The Waste Land there is a painful absence of vision, a desire for a hidden apocalypse, a spiritual dimension which is conspicuous by its absence. The language is characteristically apocalyptic, but withheld, allowed to wither in a desert of unknowing.
