Great Regulars: He then makes a set of assertions

that ultimately form the basis of the philosophical stance taken in the poem: "Between the idea/And the reality/Between the motion/And the act/Falls the Shadow." Everything on this earth is covered and disguised by a shadow. That shadow is the illusion that humankind is separated from its divine origin.

from Linda Sue Grimes: Suite101.com: T. S. Eliot's The Hollow Men
