Here is a link to a hypertext site that doesn't hurt my eyes. http://wasteland.windingway.org/poem I find it very useful and as said it doesn't hurt your eyes and gives you direct sources as hypertext sites hould. I've been referencing this site a lot for my paper, and for it's direct links to the works.
I'm sure people have already found this though but if not here it is!
Here is what I have so far of my map though I think it's pretty much done. Also I claimed that the capital of Hell, Pandemonium and the Island of The Tempest are London/England since I couldn't get over the fact they didn't have their own place and it made sense to me. After all, both end up violent places and liot talks of violence and crim in The Wasteland.

For those who are working with Biblical references for the Waste Land wiki, here are a couple of helpful study resources!
Biblos is a fantastic site because it hosts a variety of different tools--an atlas for maps, greek and hebrew roots for word studies, commentaries, and a broad range of translations, among other things. Definitely a key tool for anyone studying the Bible for any reason.
Bible Gateway is a very good site for straight text study--it has different versions, cross-references, all sorts of fun stuff. Less fun tools than Biblos, better for reading through the actual text.
Hope you guys find these helpful!
Searching for images related to "The Wasteland" I found this one with the first part of the poem, "The Burial of the Dead."
I created a rectangular shape to encircle the block around his house, where he spends the majority of his life. Then, I traced the roads to show an estimation of what path he took to reach the bazaar. Finding the train tracks was the most difficult part. I followed Northumberland Road because it was a different color than the rest, had arrows indicating what direction it goes, and went from the train station all the way to the bazaar. I also made the embedded map larger and in the terrain format to make it look less busy. The points on the Araby map already look crowded as it is.

A poem by Thomas Love Peacock. It is a mnemonic devised poem that helps children learn the history of England in a satirical way. After all, Thomas Love Peacock’s well known for his satire. I mapped only at the moment some of the places mentioned in the history of England. I still will have a lot of mapping to do. It is after all a long poem and many people/events are mentioned. The poem can be found in a link in my description for the map. Mapping in the way of the poem is interesting because it’s definitely a short history of England. It mostly has many events centered in England’s land while places not in England are far off. France and Palestine seem to be the only close places that are not in England. Mapping out this poem showed the distances of these ventures and I was able to see where they were located or at least closely located.

I have taken some time to adjust my paths to a route the boy might have traveled, staying along roads and train tracks. What I am most interested in knowing is a bit more about how train tracks work, because I'm not entirely sure my train route is all correct. The bazaar is now represented by a pair of masks, indicating the mixed nature of that end to the boy's quest. I have also changed colours a bit, so that pink represents the neighborhood of his childhood, cyan the quest and the journey towards adulthood on foot, and red the same by train.
