This review is from: The Annotated Waste Land with Eliot's Contemporary Prose (Hardcover)
Rainey's introduction is lucid and highly accessible. In delineating the stages of production and publication of The Waste Land he guides the 21st century reader towards a more comfortable and natural reading of the text. It enabled me to approach The Waste Land with a fresh eye, unencumbered by the need to impose an overarching structure. Fascinating and illuminating.
