Listen to T. S. Eliot reading his own poem, “The Hollow Men.” His poignant, dramatic recitation will help you grasp the poem in a way that isn’t possible through simply reading it. Poetry is meant to be heard! (Background music is from Vincent Persichetti’s composition, “The Hollow Men, for trumpet & string orchestra, Op. 25.”)
“The Hollow Men” alludes to Joseph Conrad’s work Heart of Darkness (E2.4 focus text).
The book shown above is a collection of Conrad’s writings including the E2.4 focus text, Heart of Darkness. We have not yet reviewed the other material included in this collection.
