Have Your Own Say: Introduction and Instructions

This section of the website gives you the chance to say where you see voice-switches in The Waste Land, and then to assign voice-identities (from our Cast List) to the sections of text you've demarcated.

This section currently consists of two steps. In the first step, you can indicate every instance in the poem where you perceive a voice-switch (you are currently limited to indicated voice-switches between lines; i.e., you cannot indicate a voice-switch in the middle of a line.) In the second step, you assign indentities to the passages you've selected. Instructions are included on the left column in the Have Your Own Say page.

In the future, a third step will allow you to hear the poem read aloud according to your division of voices.
