Eliot: The Waste Land

Alliteration: summer surprised, winter warm, little life, forgetful feeding, mixing memory, lilacs land

I think that Eliot ends The Waste Land in the manner that he does because he begins the poem in the same way, by drawing from different languages in order to convey his point. He also uses different languages possibly to portray the universality of his message and of his pain/sorrow.
