|T. S. Eliot|
Earlier in his talk McLuhan propped up T. S. Eliot as a guide to the direction he was outlining. Eliot, McLuhan noted, sent his readers exploring Latin, Greek, French and Sanskrit as new kinds of perception. Eliot, McLuhan continues, restored the use of ancient myth for modern poetry in the Wasteland as a means of revealing life lived according to two contrasting kinds of love and two kinds of death.
