The Waste Land by Prof. Harold Bloom
  

Synopsis

The Waste Land by Prof. Harold Bloom

Perhaps the most written-about long poem of the 20th century, T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land is a cornerstone of the modernist movement and deals with what was then viewed as the decline of civilization. Because of its changes of speaker, location, and time, as well as its numerous literary and cultural references, The Waste Land is often used in the classroom to exemplify how to explicate a poem. This title offers students an indispensable resource meant to deepen their appreciation of this seminal work by investigating its innovative use of language and imagery.

Reviews

This is the type of novel that is open to interpretation and students will gain a better understanding from reading all of the discussion. Doctorow is quoted in several chapters. Students looking for criticism and analysis of literary works will find it easy to use this title rather than searching endlessly for the Journals in which these articles may have originally appeared. A valuable resource for literature collections.
