T.S.Eliot

The Waste Land

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.

    Which is not to be found in our obituaries
