Evidence

"Coachman"s daughter Anne Tibble was enraged by ""The Waste Land"", which she read as a scholarship student at a redbrick university: ""Eliot"s neurosis of disillusion was horrifying... almost utterly invalid...almost entirely without feeling for others. Eliot showed people as ugly, stupid, shabby, vulgarian, squalid, somehow indecent...the "broken fingernails of dirty hands"...Weren"t these my father"s and my mother"s hands?"". The experience of reading it plunged her into depression, but in the late 1920s it was difficult to express her real feelings about one of the greatest living poets...Instead, she channelled her scholarly energies toward the poetry of John Clare, whose work affirmed the literacy of working people".
