I presume you are referring to the TS. Elliot poem? Put simply The Waste Land " refers to the spiritual and intellectual decay of the modern world. The land is a barren and dry. Nothing grows from it and decay is a common theme. Link that with human nature of the 20th century and you have the basic idea of the title.
