The Hollow Men

The Hollow Men

by T.S. Eliot

Analysis: Sex Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

PG

At one point in the poem, the Hollow Men appear ready to get their groove on. They are "trembling with tenderness" (49), but have no one with whom to be affectionate. Scarecrows don't make great partners, so instead they pray to some broken stones.
