      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 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 mean I understand a single goddamn word of it Of course not But and this is the great part that doesn t matter Eliot has been quoted as saying he s perfectly aware that no one has any idea what his poems are about, and he [...]

      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 to impress female Eng Lit majors Well, I said, you could do worse than use The Waste Land Just memorise a few lines, and you ll probably be able to bluff successfully.We did some rehearsals, and eventually ag [...]

      April is the cruellest month, breedingLilacs out of the dead land, mixingMemory and desire, stirringDull 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 effusion, a magical spell envelops the reader who would be kept shifting between time and space, embark and decay of civilization, prophecy and satire, philosophy and faith, life and death throughout the mind [...]

      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 fragmented, haunting, laden with symbolism and allusions, and utterly brilliant A diverse cast of characters take turns narrating the poem, or having their conversations overheard by the narrator, including a Lithu [...]

    6. BillKerwin on said:

      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 desert of our culture, but which he presents in a way that grants them new terror and new poignancy, in a way that shows us fear in a handful of dust and hints if only by its absence at the possibility of a [...]

    7. Bookdragon Sean on said:

      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 readingUlysses, a notoriously difficult book, but I am enjoying it nonetheless This, however, is an entirely different creature Despite being an English student I do find poetry difficult It may be because of my background I transferred from sciences into English, so I had very little experience beyond a few poems I read at school So when I [...]

    8. Pantelis on said:

      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 MoronI 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 could legitimately say I appreciate their significance but I don t like them at all I don t think there has ever been literary masturbation about any other piece of writing than The Wasteland, and I personall [...]

      I must confess I have no idea what I just read But it was the most beautiful thing.

    12. Rakhi Dalal on said:

      After the torchlight red on sweaty faces After the frosty silence in the gardens After the agony in stony places The shouting and the crying Prison and palace and reverberation Of thunder of spring over distant mountains He who was living is now dead We who were living are now dying With a little patience.

    13. Ken Moten on said:

      From 2012, I think One of my early reviews was of the anthology of Eliot The Waste Land and Other Writings where I reviewed the structure of the book than I did any of the poems I have looked back since writing it and am unsatisfied This is one of my favorite poems, if not my favorite and it deserves better, so I will review it by itself Now this is a cue sudden dramatic music modernist work which is to say, no roses are read violets are blue here It was released in THE year for literature 1922 [...]

    15. Steph on said:

      i think this might make me an anti intellectual, but i enjoyed this poem so much when i read this outside of the classroom and infused it with my own tenuous understanding of what was going on in the poem in class, explicating every single obscure reference effectively killed it still such a powerful opening though his poems have lines you want to taste in your mouth, and repeat over and over like magical intonations, or write down covertly in a secret book of quotes.

      T S Eliot, who was a literary man who previously had faith in literary wisdom and social norms, I think discovered during World War I how useless lessons of wisdom and defined social s were against processing the experience of massive wartime deaths and maiming His personal tragedy of a very damaging marriage was also very difficult In The Waste Land , I think Eliot was ranting at literature, society, religion and culture for failing to stop the collapse of civilization Eliot also rages at the u [...]

      In college I read an author I loved and can t find him He wrote in the 20 s in prose, and they called him the street poet He didn t rhyme but made you feel his words I thought Eliot might be that one I m not sure if I read him then but the poem amazed me The I read and write the I understand and the deeper the pleasure I read Eliot a couple years ago and hated it I read him again this week and read in awe His words branch off into hundreds of novels your mind creates His imagery takes you into [...]

    18. EmilyO on said:

      What can one say about The Waste Land that hasn t already been said It s disjointed, difficult, long, and brilliant Parts of it are confusing and grotesque I m looking at you, carbuncular young man while other parts are strikingly painfully beautiful It is laden with symbolism and references to everything under the sun The only interpretation people can agree on is that something is terribly broken, though no one can seem to agree on exactly what that thing is If you like poetry, and are up for [...]

      April is the cruelest month, breedinglilacs out of the dead land, mixingmemory and desire, stirringdull roots with spring rain I had to read this for a Modernism unit I m taking, which made sense because I knew nothing about this poem going in except that it s supposed to be THE modernism poem and also that Ezra Pound edited the shit out of it I read T.S Eliot s other famous poem The Lovesong of J Alfred Prufrock in highschool, which I liked because of it s beautiful writing and clever use of al [...]

      In summary the poem is aptly titled if waste is the colloquial to poop on , and land means my time.Okay, so this has been on my reading list for a while It was supposed to be so good Its legend preceded it, and it had a lot to live up to, judging from many literature buffs Some have referred to this poem as an embodiment of the zeitgeist of the 20th century Besides being a poet and writer, T.S Eliot was a literary critic whom any author of his time would have begged on all fours to have him supp [...]
