The Waste Land T.S. Eliot by Prof. Harold Bloom


The Waste Land T.S. Eliot by Prof. Harold Bloom

A cornerstone of the Modernist movement, T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land suggests the fragmentation of civilization following World War I. Because of its changes of speaker, location, and time, as well as its numerous literary and cultural references, 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.


Each essay is well-defined and laboriously researched, and each opinion is defended within its context...The book is a useful tool for students needing to examine the themes and context of Tolkien's work.
