T. S. Eliot's (1888-1965) mid-period poems are, “The Hollow Men” (1925), “Journey of the Magi” (1927), “A Song for Simeon” (1927), “Animula” (1929), Ash-Wednesday (1930), and “Marina” (1930). “The Hollow Men” describes both circular images suggesting the repetition of a decaying society, and post-circular images oriented in vain to transcend a decaying society. “Journey of the Magi,” “A Song for Simeon,” and “Animula” convey the spiritual rebirth of men, reflecting Eliot's conversion to Anglicanism in 1927. Ash-Wednesday and “Marina” deal with the move from spiritual emptiness in life to hope for human salvation. These six poems gradually strengthen his post-circular images.
