April is not the cruellest month. At least here below the Equator where we live Autumn time. Even considering climate changes due to.. you know what. So the poet had a slanted view on human decay. It doesn’t matter whether class-oriented or hemisphere-bound...
Fruit keep on coming, Earth is still spinning and yet when it comes to civilization it seems the hollow does not meet the void any more. Hollow men are just empty, completely disconnected from nature. They lost that sense of void, i.e. the meaningful relationship with everything else that brings awareness of the oneness of life and universe.
April should never be blamed. Unless flowers or fruit insist on defying men’s will to power.
