Book Description

27 Sep 1999
Declared to be one of the most important poems of the 20th Century, T.S. Eliot's "The Waste Land" moves seamlessly from prophetic to satirical, from speaker to speaker, and through time and cultures. T.S. Eliot is a crowning jewel of the early American Modernism.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eliot re-discovered 29 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A chance quotation in a book nudged me to look again at Eliot's poetry, which I haven't read for decades. This "slim volume" is a perfect re-acquaintance, without being too daunting. I remembered how I loved the poetry, and am finding new meaning this time around. Maybe I'll move on to more of it. Thank you.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fine edition 2 Mar 2013
By Eloise
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was a required text for my university course. The text itself is wonderful, and I would recommend it to anyone, however this particular edition is not particularly nice. In places the line numbers and notes got in the way of the text of the poem.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the finest poems ever written 8 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Waste Land is an incredible poem, almost cinematic in its tone and breadth, longer than some short stories, more intelligent than most books. It doesn't pay to try and describe something that is already so absorbed into the English language. Suffice it to say, I think it is an essential poem, an historical tract in its own right (it captures that post-Great War ambivalence of gratitude for surviving, but being presented with a far from golden future). The kindle edition includes Prufrock and many other famous Eliot poems. Well worth buying for The Waste Land alone, if you don't already own it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good poetry, but too little of it 3 July 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This selection is okay -- but you hardly need a selected Eliot as his Collected Poems is not much longer, and is only a few pounds more. That's the one I'd go for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful 7 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A splendid, beautiful and moving evocation and reminder of human mortality and frailty. Send not to know, dear friend, for whom the bell tolls.

4.0 out of 5 stars Modernism 20 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Excellent book, poem itself has some intertextuality which requires looking at if you are to try and make the most informed debate. Worth reading, classic!
