Product Description

Review

""The Annotated Waste Land is a nearly indispensable tool for scholars and students alike. With clear, balanced, and well-written scholarship, Lawrence Rainey soothes, with knowledge, our anxiety about approaching Eliot's famously difficult poem and allows us much easier access to the poem's greatness. I raced through the book, cover to cover, with pleasure and profit, and I will, I'm sure, return to it frequently."-Andrew Hudgins, author of "After the Lost War"

I am not in a position to criticise one of the great literary achievements of the twentieth century. Everyone should read it, and make what they can of it.
The introduction and prefatory notes are good. The layout, by which I mean the typography of the poem is quite dreadful. I am aware of some of Eliot's own unusual directions in this respect, but (for example) he never intended certain passages to be set so small as to be almost unreadable. I take it this edition was not proof-read.
Sorry, but I am going out to buy a Penguin, which will almost certainly cope with Eliot's typographic intentions.
E.B. Hamilton.

The text is good, but as a digital book it is very poor. There are a lot of notes, but can they be accessed digitally? - absolutely not!! Reading it is therefore quite hard work - the most disappointing e-reading experience I've had so far.

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.
