Madison Julius Cawein was a poet from Louisville, Kentucky. In 1913, a year before his death, Cawein published a poem called "Waste Land" in a Chicago magazine which included Ezra Pound as an editor. Scholars have identified this poem as an inspiration to T.S. Eliot's poem The Waste Land, published in 1922 and considered the birth of modernism poetry. Although Cawein gained an international reputation, he has been eclipsed as the genre of poetry in which he worked became increasingly outmoded.
