Exploring The Waste Land
An allusion page linked from The Waste Land, Part I, line 25

There is shadow under this red rock

This line may be an allusion to The Book of Isaiah, Chapter 32, verse 2 (where man is a reference to the Messiah):

"And a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land."
