But if these are the eyes of God, it is a God who is no longer present and who was created by the desire of an ambitious oculist to make money. Dim and shabby, the eyes brood over a world that has become a dumping ground. A few paragraphs later they have their human counterpart in the light blue eyes of George Wilson, a shabby, spiritless denizen of the waste land. In one form or another the ashes pervade the chapter, recurring as the dust on Wilson's wrecked Ford, the ashen veil on his hair Page 21 and clothing, and the heavy white powder on Catherine's face.
