The Waste Land [Facsimile of 1922 First Edition]

The Waste Land [Facsimile of 1922 First Edition]

by T S Eliot

Paperback / softback Publication Date: 08/05/2013

 
2013 Reprint of 1922 Edition. "The Waste Land" is a 434-line modernist poem by T. S. Eliot published in 1922. It has been called "one of the most important poems of the 20th century." Despite the poem's obscurity-its shifts between satire and prophecy, its abrupt and unannounced changes of speaker, location and time, its elegiac but intimidating summoning up of a vast and dissonant range of cultures and literatures-the poem has become a familiar touchstone of modern literature. Among its famous phrases are "April is the cruellest month," "I will show you fear in a handful of dust," and the mantra in the Sanskrit language "Shantih shantih shantih."
