A thin collection of poems,
This review is from: Prufrock and Other Observations (Poet to Poet: An Essential Choice of Classic Verse) (Paperback)
If you must be a fan of this pretentious and shallow poet, you'd get far better value by buying his collected poems. Eliot was of course a master at making very little sound quite big and important, but with eight skinny poems and the longer ambitious poems of an experimenting adolescent here, even this famous word conjuror cannot make this thin book look like value for money.

Quite. Until one weeps with Eliot's poems, one hasn't yet even noticed them. What a pity people analsyse this to pieces - it is so obvious what is being said to any Honest Englishman.
