“The Hanged Man” represents the hanged god of Frazer (including the Christ), is associated with the “hooded figure” in the passage of the disciples to Emmaus in “What the Thunder Said”.

Connection to The Waste LandEdit

In the Tarot cards, the hanged man is shown hanging from one foot from a T-shaped cross. He symbolizes the self-sacrifice of the fertility god who is killed in order for his resurrection may bring fertility again to the land and people. He is “hooded” accounts for Madame Sosostris inability to see him.
