Book Review

The Waste Land by T S Eliot A classic that requires some study.

This is my first encounter with T S Eliot and thus also with The Waste Land. I came to it with no prior knowledge and no study. To begin with I found it darkly bewildering. I can say, with honesty, that I had some appreciation of it – enough, in fact, to want to study it properly. I sense something remarkable, unique, speaking to me. Now I want to fully appreciate the voice of a genius, after which I suspect a five star rating will seem woefully inadequate.
