The Hollow Men[edit]

Why do we not have a wikisource page for The Hollow Men? If the wikipedia article links to the full text of the poem, shouldn't we be able to have it here instead?

I'd make the page myself, but I don't know if the poem is in the public domain/would be okay to include.


Not copyright-free in the US yet. Sorry. --StephenDaedalus 18 feb 2012

Inventions of the March Hare[edit]

Does anyone know if this book of poetry sketches written by Eliot before 1917 is in the public domain? The problem might be that is wasn't actually published until he died. --StephenDaedalus 18 feb 2012

Initials in page title[edit]

Is there a reason we haven't moved this page to Author:Thomas Stearns Eliot as we would for any other author? —Beleg Tâl (talk) 18:38, 13 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

'We' have no consensus to do that. Reasons not to move this would include the author's own preference, its overwhelming familiarity, correspondence with other wikis, Least Astonishment or confusion for reader, and lack of process here in determining when to do it, NPOV and so on. Expanding any author name might be a good idea when it becomes ambiguous. Cygnis insignis (talk) 20:04, 13 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
On the contrary, expanding initials in page titles is a well established practice on Wikisource. If there is community consensus to exempt this page from such practice, that is another matter. —Beleg Tâl (talk) 20:12, 13 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
