about me 2 - A handful of dust

30.12.08
I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.
The "about me" of a chennai profile went like this. I was impressed by the lines which led me to a short investigation into the source.
The lines were actually from the poem The Waste Land by the poet T. S. Eliot. The lines also gained publicity through the novel "A Handful of Dust" which stands out from the 20th century novels.
The novel was later made into a movie whose details can be seen at imdb here. The movie was nominated for Oscar.
