This all-new Signet Classic contains many of T.S. Eliot 's most important early poems, leading to perhaps his greatest masterpiece, The Waste land , which has long been regarded as one of the fundamental texts of modernism. By combining poetic elements from many diverse sources with bits of popular culture and common speech linked in a fragmented narrative, Eliot recreated the chaos and disillusionment of Europe in the aftermath of WWI. The Waste Land is a modernist literary masterpiece. Contains a number of early poems, including Spleen, The Death of St. Narcissus, The Love Song of J. Prufrock, Preludes, Gerontion, The Hippopotmaus , and Sweeny Among the Nightingales . T.S. Eliot is the winner of the 1948 Nobel Prize for Literature, and is one of America's greatest poets. Edited and with an Introduction by Helen Vendler, a foremost scholar of moderism at Harvard University who writes regularly for the New Yorker and The New Republic . Vendler is also the author of books on other essential poets, including W.B. Yeats, Wallace Stevens, John Keats, George Herbert , and the forthcoming The Art of Shakespeare's Sonnete .

display_description Loosely based on the Arthurian legend of the Holy Grail and the Fisher King, "The Waste Land", which first appeared in 1922, is a landmark work of Modernist poetry. Containing hundreds of allusions and quotations from other works, The Waste Land is marked by a disjointed structure which moves between voices and imagery without a clear delineation for the reader, a hallmark of Modernist literature. Arguably Eliot's most famous work, the theme of the poem, as the title would suggest, is ultimately a dire one, of disillusionment, despair, and death. Also included in this collection is "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" a work which preceded The Waste Land having been first published in 1910. Regarded as the beginning of Eliot's influential period, "Prufrock" was considered idiosyncratic at first but with time has been recognized as an important shift in poetry from the Romantic era to the Modernist one. "The Wasteland and Other Poems", which includes an additional twenty-three poems, collects some of the most pivotal works of the Modernist literary movement, which would establish Eliot as one of the most important poets of the 20th century.
