Review: The Waste Land and Other Poems by T.S. Elliot

Synopsis: Contains the title poem, as well as selections from "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock," Gerontion, " "Ash-Wednesday," and other poems from Elliot's early and middle work.

Review: While I do not adore Elliott as I do Sappho or Hughes or Rosetti, I don't despise his work either. I'm neither enamored nor repelled by his prose. It's modern, which I don't like, but choppy and brief, which I do. I can see the merit of his work but I won't go out of my way to read it. Not with other more delicious poems around for the gobbling.
