As the incident takes place all within one, short sentence, it conveys how effortless the action is for Tom and has an impact on the reader as the use of deft conveys the force of the blow. The issue of sexualised violence is also a theme throughout The Waste Land such as between the typist and the young man carbuncular who #. Kateara Anglistiky interprets this sexual relationship as devastated sexuality through spiritual dryness. Violence can therefore be seen as a release from this devastation. However P. Ranjini reads this relationship as one that has degenerated to the level of animality. This may well be, as the monotonous narrative and rigid, predictable structure reduces the act to that of emotionless animal mating. Eliot is also expressing the disharmony between men and women in this wasteland as emotion becomes detached from sex. The relationship between Myrtle and Tom is also a depiction of this detachment. He uses violence to show that respect, love and affection are absent from the modern day relationship. In both cases, the theme of sexualised violence is a result of the effects of modern day culture. In The Great Gatsby the excesses of drinking and parties are the environment in which the violence takes place. In The Waste Land it is due to the feeling of social conformity, the mechanical nature of the relationship is shown through the actions of the typist such as# . This is also reflected in the rhymes and regular structure that make the description lacking any passion. This suggests that the casual nature of sexual relations has ultimately led to violence as the mutual respect between men and women that existed in the past has broken downCHNKWKS |�(c)TEXTTEXT��FDPPFDPP�FDPCFDPC�FDPCFDPC�FDPCFDPC�STSHSTSH�hSTSHSTSHh(r)�SYIDSYID 1/4SGP SGP "1/4INK INK &1/4BTEPPLC *1/4BTECPLC B1/4(FONTFONTj1/4pTOKNPLC +1/4bFTN FTN <�-FTN FTN Z"-STRSPLC ...read more.

Eliot uses literary references and allusions to relationships of the past to compare the modern day equivalent so in A Game of Chess Eliot uses Antony and Cleopatra to represent love in the past, as their passion changed the future of the Roman Empire. The language used is very descriptive and rich in detail , and has controlled structure. This serves as a sharp contrast to the conversation between a woman and her male companion which is fragmented, disjointed, lacking structure and distressed in tone#. This conversation could be interpreted as Vivienne and Eliot, as they had a strained marriage and throughout the course of it her mental health deteriorated. Eliot also used literary references and settings to juxtapose modern day situations. In the Fire Sermon, P.Ranjini argues that Edmund Spenser s idealised paradise and vision of human love is used as a backdrop for modern sexual relations. This may be as during Spenser s time, lovers made dignified love by the Thames and this is used to contrast modern day anonymous sex. The nymphs in Eliot s description are used to represent modern women #. Macrae also interprets the use of Spenser s joyful wedding poem as a contrast to modern, sordid sex as it sounds mocking and exposes present day relationships to the reader as lacking something that existed in the past but is now lost. Fitzgerald also uses the past but as flashbacks rather than fragments of the past. This more cinematic technique is illustrated in Chapter 4 when Jordan retells the idealised story of Daisy and Gatsby s relationship# and then her and Tom s marriage#. This shows a distinction between the current loveless, dishonest relationship, where Tom is having an affair and Daisy is involved with Gatsby because Daisy ought to have something in her life (Chapter 4). Both writers use references to the First World War and the time prior to that as both works were written during the 1920s post war era and were both part of a generation that had been violated and changed by war. ...read more.
