This was the first film in which Joel and Ethan Coen share both producing and directing credits; previously Joel had always been credited as director and Ethan as producer. PLOT Mrs. Marva Munson, a strict, religious and elderly widow, meets "Professor" Goldthwaite Higginson Dorr, a southern linguist/Edgar Allan Poe enthusiast who expresses interest in the room she has for rent and asks to use her root cellar for rehearsals of an early music ensemble he directs, to which she agrees. The fellow musicians in the pretend ensemble are actually a gang of criminals.

Eliot’s “lost” pages were not uncovered until the early 1950s (Ford). In 1971, a facsimile of the original drafts of “The Waste Land,” edited by Eliot’s second wife, Valerie, was published and revealed how much of the poem was edited and compressed by Eliot himself, along with Ezra Pound, who played a significant role in the editing of the poem, and his first wife, Vivien (Ford). This essay would be examining the major changes made to first, third, and fourth section “The Waste Land” and how the meaning of the poem was not affected. The first section, “The Burial of the Dead” did not initially begin with “April is the cruelest month” (Eliot 1). This part appears as the second stanza in the original draft starting at line fifty-five in which the first fifty-four lines before went unpublished (see Figure 1).
