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.
