Ink note inside front cover, corner of half-title page removed. 1971 Trade Paperback. 116 pp. 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 alleged obscurity of the poem – 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 nonetheless become a familiar touchstone of modern literature. Among its famous phrases are April is the cruellest month (its first line); I will show you fear in a handful of dust; and (its last line) the mantra in the Sanskrit language Shantih shantih shantih. - Wikipedia
