Part II
Line 111

In The Waste Land a dialog starts at line 111:

How well do you think Eliot handles dramatic dialog? What lines are spoken by whom? Which lines are spoken and which thought? How can you tell?

There are also sections in The Waste Land where he has monologues. How well are these written? Why are there so many more monologues than dialogs?
