The Waste Land and Other Writings Reviews

  • Shankar
    I think I would be doing T S Eliot and his fans an injustice by writing a review - as I am a poetry novice. Sublime is the word. Excellent themes and wonderful rendition. I am literally going to re read this to be able to write a self respecting review.I thank my good friend Julie to introducing me ...

    My road trip read while visiting the in-laws. I've read most of these before, but in this case what I'm gaining from my previous Eliot readings are 1) Mary Karr's outstanding introductory essay, and 2) a number of the Eliot essays. To be honest, I don't know if I'll read all of the essays. But back ...

  • Wise Cat
    I didn't actually finish this entire book, and I was never big on poetry. This wasn't exactly the edition I wanted, but it was close enough. I only got it to read The Wasteland to see why it was considered so "classic". When I saw it mentioned in a review on a dystopian book, I assumed it was a nove...
  • B. P. Rinehart
    Well this is awkward. It turns out there ARE notes/annotations for The Waste Land after the poem, notes by no-less than Eliot himself! But, the catch is that much of it is non-english which means I still can't read it, which means Eliot in his modernist fashion has meta-trolled me, which means that ...
