AbstractTo explain the fact that modern man being only half alive with main wish which is death, Eliot in his " The Waste Land" employs many images and the image of woman is one of them. By using woman character, Eliot shows the attractiveness of death as a main theme and develops it by referring to the difficulty of arousing from life death. By presenting women who suffer from boredom, lack of ambition , frustration in love and emphasizing the idea that love which is the source of life leads only to death in this waste world ,Eliot is warning the modern secular man of the psychological, physical and social waste that result from materialism and shedding light on the emptiness of modern love and the meaningless of life.
