Hi! I m a new member and I would like to ask if anyone knows that: was Andrew influenced by Thomas Eliot 's 'Wasteland' during the making of the floodland (I mean the concept, in an interview Andrew said that the album is about the prostitution of Europe by America or smthing like that)? .Eliot s theme is the cultural wasteland that Europe is becoming.

Thx. Sorry for my bad english, I hope u understand the question

Thx mate but no answer found there...

I believe that andrew was influenced by Elliot (and by radiant activity of course) when he wrote the lyrics of wasteland but it can t be proved...

1959 is indeed a good interpretation site...

There s a close relationship in the way that Andrew writes and Eliot wrote (for example the line 'where strange men rent strange flowers' is excellent, it could be part of the masterpiece of the 20th century)and of course the way Cohen wrote. Go figure...
