    1. Uncle I measured out my life with coffee spoons in the hours, weeks, indeed months between when I first picked this up and when I subsequently set it down unfinished It gets two stars in deference to the world of literary critics and english PhD s who call Eliot a master I want to believe that good poetry has something to share with us I even keep a copy of Garrison Keillor s anthology Good Poem s For Hard Times on my night stand, for Pete s sakes It s there right now, see Ok maybe there the tv [...]



    2. I dont know how to review this because it always feels like I am still in the process of reading it and untangling it and pealing away it s layers times i find my self reciting the parts that i know of some of these poems.when I am really done with it if I am ever, I might give a proper review.


    3. T.S Eliot takes a lot of work I wouldn t recommend just plowing through The Wasteland on your own It s the type of poem you only really understand when you discuss it in a group If I hadn t studied it in a class in college, I m sure I never would ve understood it.I would give 5 stars to Prufrock alone, and probably 3 or 4 to the rest I especially loved Prufrock when I was single, b c I think it captures the essence of male timidity The language is oblique, but has some powerful contrasting image [...]


    4. Not my cup of tea Not only did I not get the beauty of most poems, or their brilliance for that matter, but the provided interpretations seemed rather bold How does a person come up with such ideas Why are they accepted E.g I interpreted Prufrock completely different and I admit it, I like my interpretation much better I don t understand Eliot s poetry But at least I tried.


    5. I studied this during my A Level English Literature class I had absolutely no idea what it was about back then, and having picked up and perused this book recently, I am still totally and completely baffled I remember the long, long, drawn out agony of the endless reading aloud of this poetry in my English Literature classes, and the feelings of utter and total crazed despair, frustration and boredom that made me want to stand up and scream no I m know this poetry is an accomplished literary ma [...]


    6. If you asked me a few years ago to make a list of who I thought would be on the list of poets most influential to my own voice, I would never have selected Eliot I have always been a little intimidated by his intelligence For me, the key to gaining a deeper appreciation for Eliot was a deeper study of Anglo Saxon poetry Modernists like Eliot and Auden and Pound most remind me, for all their experimentation, of those old tellers of epic tales the attention to language and rhythm, the idea of poet [...]


    7. T.S Eliot s poem The Waste Land is a collection of fragments There are 5 parts to the poem and the connection between these parts are noted to be anything but obvious, yet they all hold different layers of voices and obscure elements to the non traditional reader The poem as a whole constantly shifts its point of view and is abundantly full of references of classic literature from varied cultures The Waste Land is, in a visual sense, bits of history stories broken up by war and reassembled into [...]



    8. This volume contains Eliot s first two books of Poetry and his magnum opus, The Waste Land, with its much needed and thankfully introductions, foot notes and critical commentary Without the afterword analysis, I don t think I would appreciate some of the earlier poems as much as I eventually was able to do I particularily enjoyed several where I did not feel as lost as to the poet s thematic meaning or narrative Mr Eliot s literary aspirations and ideals for great poetry are that they maintain a [...]


    9. Eliot is one of my favorite poets to read He utterly confuses me at times, but his poetry always has me looking for the deeper meaning in things It stretches my brain almost to the point of pain at times to read Eliot coughe Wasteland , but I enjoy this kind of pain.


    10. This collection gathers the most popular of Eliot s poetry together in one slim volume and the reader, depending on the quality of their high English school teachers, is sure to remember many of them Whether it s Journey of the Magi, The Hollow Men, The Waste Land, or the Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock these poems demonstrate why T.S Eliot was one of the most important poets of the modern period Eliot as a writer established a unique voice arranging the words in every poem in such a way that it [...]


    11. T.S Eliot is my all time favorite poet I m not sure if I ve read this addition of his poems, but I ve read enough to give his poetry 5 starts.The Wasteland and The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock are the best, and everyone should read them His use of language, ryme, and flow are incredible.



    12. At the violet hour, when the eyes and backTurn upward from the desk, when the human engine waitsLike a taxi throbbing waiting,I Tiresias, though blind, throbbing between two lives,Old man with wrinkled female breasts, can seeAt the violet hour, the evening hour that strivesHomeward, and brings the sailor home from sea,The typist home at tea time, clears her breakfast, lightsHer stove, and lays out food in tins.Out of the window perilously spreadHer drying combinations touched by the sun s last r [...]


    13. Right like I m really going to critique the works of T.S Eliot However, I will say this because some of his poetry contains bits and pieces from other works of literature that span Western and Eastern poetry, fiction, philosophy and theology, it s great fun to deconstruct those poems to see how they were put together For example, see eliotswastelandipod However, to really appreciate what Elliot was getting at, you need to reassemble these fragments That s because the manner in which he juxtapose [...]


    14. Let us go then, you and I, when the evening is spread out against the sky like a patient etherized upon a table This collection contains two of Eliot s most famous works, The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock and The Waste Land, but it also includes all the other poems he published betwen 1917 and 1922 I love Eliot and his use of allusion and symbolism in poetry Because this volume is annotated there was a constant string of footnotes translating text and explaining references in the poems, which I [...]


    15. there is a very small quantity of poetry volumes, and books in general that could compare to the quality of this book has achieved such a collection of achievements that are so very difficult, and as a collaboration has never been seenrst any holder of a respectable degree in English literature, or student, or even your average avid reader would tell you the waste land is mother of all avant gardd that alone is a tremendous achievement, but to achieve it while still holding the love and respect [...]


    16. Good, yes, but incredibly inaccessible for anyone without an English degree This is probably best read as part of a course so there is someone to guide you through the language and all the literary references, and it would help if you have a good command of French and it would be even better if you also understood at least some Greek and Latin.This isn t to say that all of the poems in this collection are as inaccessible as The Wasteland and some of the others Once you ve translated the French p [...]


    17. Please read The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock It is my favorite poem and it quite possibly changed my life Never have I experienced a piece of literature that I have heard interpreted in so many different manners this, in addition to my personal reading of Prufrock, has led me to believe that everyone can find themself in it on some level Moreover, everytime I read it, I pick up a new piece of somethinga glimmering something that had slipped past me times before I am in love with this poem It i [...]


    18. Re read this again because I am reading Constellation of Genuis and that centers around Joyce and Eliot Prufrock is one of my favorites but I didn t remember Wasteland or his other poems very clearly Great stuff My favorite is still Prufrock.


    19. I suspect that I am missing something, but I simply didn t get it I spent the huge bulk of the time confused and wanting the damn thing to just be over with already Maybe someday I ll go back and try again with fresh eyes.


    20. La tierra bald a, como su t tulo dice, nos sumerge en una tierra vac a, de desesperanza Y nos envuelve en una atm sfera extra a, casi g tica El defecto que le encuentro que puede ser tambi n virtud, es que me qued con ganas de m s.



    21. Tricky to read but beautiful once understood I highly recommend getting an annotated version to fully understand the meanings The Hollowmen is my favourite.





    22. Il Canto d A di J Alfred Prufrock la poesia che segn l inizio della carriera poetica di T S Eliot, 1888 1965 , il poeta inglese pi importante del XX secolo e, a mio parere, uno dei migliori poeti di tutti i tempi La poesia si presenta sotto la forma di monologo drammatico filtrato attraverso la tecnica narrativa del flusso della coscienza Questa poesia l ho conosciuta sulle pagine di un antologia di poesie inglesi che avevo come testo di studio quando lavoravo in Inghilterra ai miei anni verdi I [...]


    23. The routine and regimented ways in which to write a T S Eliot poem in 10 easy steps are as follows, ahem 1 Come upon a cute turn of phrase,2 Pen a rambunctious title loosely related to said turn of phrase,3 Thumb the pages of Dante and pluck out an epigraph preferably in the original Italian ,4 Insert said epigraph beneath said title,5 Write slapdash quatrains,6 Insert said turn of phrase at a random place in said quatrains,7 Run the occasional line of said quatrains onto the next line,8 Allude [...]
