"The Hollow Men" is a poem by Thomas Stearns Eliot (1888 - 1965), published in 1925. From the cardboard enclosure: Its themes are, like many of Eliot's poems, overlapping and fragmentary, but it is recognized to be concerned most with post–World War I Europe, the difficulty of hope and religious conversion, and, as some critics argue, Eliot's own failed marriage. The poem is divided into five parts and consists of 98 lines of which the last four are probably the most quoted lines of any 20th-century poet writing in English. Emil was born in 1961 and is an author of books of a unique technique of manufacturing handmade books from unusual materials. He does all his own illustrations, book binding and graphic design. He writes fairy tales, stories and mystical scenes and lives near Moscow.
