I'm trying to write a term paper on this poem (key word is "trying") and then I realized, hey, I should waste some time by writing a review of the poem on Goodreads! So here we are. Here's my thing about T.S. Eliot: the man is ungodly brilliant and I love almost everything he's written. Does this...

You know, one of the greatest poems of the 20th century and that kind of thing. I must know a fair amount of it by heart. Here's a story about "The Waste Land" that some people may find amusing. Many years ago, when I was an undergraduate in Cambridge, a friend of mine asked me for advice on how...

... أعذر كل من لم يستطع فهم أو محبة الأرض الخراب بالعربية فأنا عانيت معها وحدي قبل دراستها بلغتها الأصلية فالرموز وطريقة السرد(العظيمة) تؤثر كثيرا على من لا خلفية له عنها هذه السنة بدأت في دبلومة الترجمة في الدراسات العليا ووجدت أستاذي في الشعر هو أحد أساتذتي في الترجمة أيضا وعندما علمت أنه يشرح القصيد...

I read a lot of poems as an English major back in the day.* Not many have stuck with me over the years, but The Waste Land is one of them: T.S. Eliot's lamentation of the spiritual drought in our day, the waste land of our Western society, lightened by a few fleeting glimpses of hope. It's fragme...

April is the cruellest month, breeding Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing Memory and desire, stirring Dull roots with spring rain. The above mentioned lines mark one of the most profound onsets in the history of modernist literature; and perhaps with eruption of the highly dense, heart pounding ef...

I would not presume to offer anything approaching a definitive judgment of this unique and influential poem, a poem which presents us—in early modernist fashion—with a provocative collage of voices and scenes, fragments which Eliot has collected from the “heap of broken images” that litter the de...

This is the hardest poem I’ve ever read. Certainly, the difficulty experienced when reading something is not enough reason to leave a bad review. I’m currently reading Ulysses, a notoriously difficult book, but I am enjoying it nonetheless. This, however, is an entirely different creature. Despi...

I often return here, and each time I find a different place and yet it is the same, maybe because I have heard and reheard the "Four Quartets" mantra... "Four Quartets" offer the solution because "The Waste Land" sets the problem... There is no Hope without Despair...

This Pisses Me Off and Makes Me Feel Like a Moron I've had to read this twice in the course of my education, and I don't like it one bit, though I thoroughly appreciate its status and importance. Sort of like my attitude to atomic weapons. You wouldn't dismiss atomic weapons as 'crap', but you c...
