A pal in Minnesota alerts me to a parody of The Waste Land by none other than the eldritch H.P. Lovecraft, about whom our own J.J. Miller recently wrote in the WSJ. I’d never seen this parody before. It’s WAY better than the original!
(Lovecraft, says my correspondent, thought Eliot a valuable intellectual but a terrible poet. I always knew HPL was, as Jeeves would have said, basically “sound.”)
