Published in 1922, The Waste Land was the most revolutionary poem of its time, offering a devastating vision of modern civilisation which has lost none of its power as we enter a new century.

Poetry. Winner of the 2011 Norma Farber First Book Award from the Poetry Society of America. John Beer's first collection, THE WASTE LAND AND OTHER POEMS, employs the wit of a philosopher and the ear of a poet to stage ways of reading that are political, personal, and theoretical. The speaker of these poems also brings humor to the dissecting table, to prod the legacies of great works of the imagination while balancing irony and affection.

The Great War, The Waste Land and the Modernist Long Poem explores how cultural responses to the trauma of the First World War found expression in the form of the modernist long poem. Beginning with T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land, Oliver Tearle reads that most famous example of the genre in comparison with lesser known long poems, such as Hope Mirrlees's Paris: A Poem, Richard Aldington's A Fool I' the Forest and Nancy Cunard's Parallax. As well as presenting a new history of this neglected genre, the book examines the ways in which the modernist long poem represented the seminal literary form for grappling with the crises of European modernity in the wake of World War I.

A cornerstone of the modernist movement, T.S. Eliot s The Waste Land reflects the profound sense of disillusionment that emerged in the wake of World War I. Because of its changes of speaker, location, and time, as well as its numerous literary and cultural references and connections to Eliot's private life, it is often used in the classroom to illustrate how to explicate a poem. Bloom s Modern Critical Interpretations allows students to approach this challenging poem with confidence. Providing carefully selected, full-length critical essays from the foremost literary publications, along with additional study helps, this freshly updated, all-in-one resource is an ideal companion for those undertaking in-depth research projects.
