    1. I'm trying to write a term paper on this poem (key word is "trying") and then I realized, hey, I should waste some time by writing a review of the poem on ! So here we are. Here's my thing about T.S. Eliot: the man is ungodly brilliant and I love almost everything he's written. Does this mean I understand a single goddamn word of it? Of course not. But (and this is the great part) that doesn't matter. Eliot has been quoted as saying he's perfectly aware that no one has any idea what his poems ar [...]

    2. You know, one of the greatest poems of the 20th century and that kind of thing. I must know a fair amount of it by heart. Here's a story about "The Waste Land" that some people may find amusing. Many years ago, when I was an undergraduate in Cambridge, a friend of mine asked me for advice on how to impress female Eng Lit majors. Well, I said, you could do worse than use The Waste Land. Just memorise a few lines, and you'll probably be able to bluff successfully.We did some rehearsals, and eventu [...]

    3. أعذر كل من لم يستطع فهم أو محبة الأرض الخراب بالعربيةفأنا عانيت معها وحدي قبل دراستها بلغتها الأصليةفالرموز وطريقة السرد(العظيمة) تؤثر كثيرا على من لا خلفية له عنهاهذه السنة بدأت في دبلومة الترجمة في الدراسات العلياووجدت أستاذي في الشعر هو أحد أساتذتي في الترجمة أيضاوعندما [...]

    4. April is the cruellest month, breedingLilacs out of the dead land, mixingMemory and desire, stirringDull roots with spring rain. The above mentioned lines mark one of the most profound onsets in the history of modernist literature; and perhaps with eruption of the highly dense, heart pounding effusion, a magical spell envelops the reader who would be kept shifting between time and space, embark and decay of civilization, prophecy and satire, philosophy and faith, life and death throughout the mi [...]

    5. I read a lot of poems as an English major back in the day.* Not many have stuck with me over the years, but The Waste Land is one of them: T.S. Eliot's lamentation of the spiritual drought in our day, the waste land of our Western society, lightened by a few fleeting glimpses of hope. It's fragmented, haunting, laden with symbolism and allusions, and utterly brilliant. A diverse cast of characters take turns narrating the poem, or having their conversations overheard by the narrator, including: [...]

    6. I would not presume to offer anything approaching a definitive judgment of this unique and influential poem, a poem which presents us—in early modernist fashion—with a provocative collage of voices and scenes, fragments which Eliot has collected from the “heap of broken images” that litter the desert of our culture, but which he presents in a way that grants them new terror and new poignancy, in a way that shows us “fear in a handful of dust” and hints--if only by its absence--at the [...]

    7. This is the hardest poem I’ve ever read. Certainly, the difficulty experienced when reading something is not enough reason to leave a bad review. I’m currently readingUlysses, a notoriously difficult book, but I am enjoying it nonetheless. This, however, is an entirely different creature. Despite being an English student I do find poetry difficult. It may be because of my background. I transferred from sciences into English, so I had very little experience beyond a few poems I read at school [...]

    8. I often return here, and each time I find a different place and yet it is the same, maybe because I have heard and reheard the "Four Quartets" mantra "Four Quartets" offer the solution because "The Waste Land" sets the problem There is no Hope without Despair

    9. This Pisses Me Off and Makes Me Feel Like a MoronI've had to read this twice in the course of my education, and I don't like it one bit, though I thoroughly appreciate its status and importance. Sort of like my attitude to atomic weapons. You wouldn't dismiss atomic weapons as 'crap', but you could legitimately say 'I appreciate their significance but I don't like them at all.'I don't think there has ever been more literary masturbation about any other piece of writing than The Wasteland, and I [...]

    12. After the torchlight red on sweaty faces After the frosty silence in the gardens After the agony in stony places The shouting and the crying Prison and palace and reverberation Of thunder of spring over distant mountains He who was living is now dead We who were living are now dying With a little patience.

    13. " من هذه الدراسة يتضح لنا أن الثورة الشعرية التي أحدثها ت.س.إليوت بقصيدة "أرض الضياع" لم تكن ثورة في الشعر الإنجليزي أو الأمريكي فحسب بل كانت ثورة في فن الشعر بصفة عامة بحيث امتد تأثيرها ليشمل معظم شعراء العالم في مختلف اللغات، سواء هؤلاء الذين قرءوها في نصها الأصلي أو مترجمة. [...]

    16. [From 2012, I think]:One of my early reviews was of the anthology of Eliot The Waste Land and Other Writings where I reviewed the structure of the book more than I did any of the poems. I have looked back since writing it and am unsatisfied. This is one of my favorite poems, if not my favorite and it deserves better, so I will review it by itself. Now this is a *cue sudden dramatic music* modernist work (which is to say, no "roses are read/violets are blue" here). It was released in THE year fo [...]

    17. “Ho i nervi a pezzi stasera. Sì, a pezzi. Resta con me.Parlami. Perché non parli mai? Parla. A che stai pensando? Pensando a cosa? A cosa?Non lo so mai a cosa stai pensando. Pensa.”Penso che siamo nel vicolo dei topiDove i morti hanno perso le ossa. Mi sento sola stasera. Le lacrime premono sulla punta degli occhi. E c’è un piccolo nodo di nausea là in fondo, che non si vuol sfogare in nessun modo. Forse è la stanchezza, è tutto il giorno che sto sui libri con questo piccolo entusias [...]

    19. i think this might make me an anti-intellectual, but i enjoyed this poem so much more when i read this outside of the classroom and infused it with my own tenuous understanding of what was going on in the poem. in class, explicating every single obscure reference effectively killed it. still such a powerful opening though. his poems have lines you want to taste in your mouth, and repeat over and over like magical intonations, or write down covertly in a secret book of quotes.

    20. T. S. Eliot, who was a literary man who previously had faith in literary wisdom and social norms, I think discovered during World War I how useless lessons of wisdom and defined social mores were against processing the experience of massive wartime deaths and maiming. His personal tragedy of a very damaging marriage was also very difficult. In 'The Waste Land', I think Eliot was ranting at literature, society, religion and culture for failing to stop the 'collapse' of civilization. Eliot also ra [...]

    21. ειχα πρωτοδιαβασει αυτο το ποιημα στα αγγλικα εκει στα 20 περιπου, στα πρωτα χρονια της σχολης και η αναμνηση που μου ειχε αφησει ηταν ενα μεγαλο ερωτηματικο και ενα απεραντο αγχος για το τι στην ευχη θα γραψω αν πεσει στην εξεταστική. .α! και κατι για τον απριλη που ειναι ο cruel [...]

    22. In college I read an author I loved and can't find him. He wrote in the 20's in prose, and they called him the street poet. He didn't rhyme but made you feel his words. I thought Eliot might be that one. I'm not sure if I read him then but the poem amazed me. The more I read and write the more I understand and the deeper the pleasure. I read Eliot a couple years ago and hated it. I read him again this week and read in awe. His words branch off into hundreds of novels your mind creates. His image [...]

    23. What can one say about The Waste Land that hasn't already been said? It's disjointed, difficult, long, and brilliant. Parts of it are confusing and grotesque (I'm looking at you, carbuncular young man) while other parts are strikingly painfully beautiful. It is laden with symbolism and references to everything under the sun. The only interpretation people can agree on is that something is terribly broken, though no-one can seem to agree on exactly what that thing is. If you like poetry, and are [...]

    24. "Abril é o mês mais cruel, geraLilases da terra morta, misturaA memória e o desejo, agitaRaízes dormentes com chuva da Primavera.O Inverno aconchegou-nos, cobriuA terra com o esquecimento da neve, alimentouUma pequena vida com bolbos ressequidos.()Nas montanhas, aí sim sentimo-nos livres.Leio, quase toda a noite, e vou para o sul no Inverno.Que raízes se prendem, que ramos crescemNeste entulho pedregoso? Filho do homem,Não consegues dizer, nem adivinhar, pois conheces apenasUm montão de [...]

    25. “April is the cruelest month, breedinglilacs out of the dead land, mixingmemory and desire, stirringdull roots with spring rain.” I had to read this for a Modernism unit I'm taking, which made sense because I knew nothing about this poem going in except that it's supposed to be THE modernism poem (and also that Ezra Pound edited the shit out of it?) I read T.S Eliot's other famous poem The Lovesong of J. Alfred Prufrock in highschool, which I liked because of it's beautiful writing and cleve [...]

    27. نکته ی بارز این کتاب اینه که "صفحه ی آخر نداره!" یا حداقل کتاب من، صفحه ی آخرش چاپ نشده و نمی دونم دیوانه کننده تر از این هم چیزی هست؟ حالا بالاخره درد هیزل و گاس رو وقت خوندن کتاب جناب پیتر فن هوتن درک می کنم، مسخره استبه غیر از این نکته ی "بارز"، باید بگم که ترجمه خوب بود، البته م [...]

    28. In summary: the poem is aptly titled if ‘waste’ is the colloquial ‘to poop on’, and ‘land’ means ‘my time’.Okay, so this has been on my reading list for a while. It was supposed to be so good. Its legend preceded it, and it had a lot to live up to, judging from many literature buffs . Some have referred to this poem as an embodiment of the zeitgeist of the 20th century. Besides being a poet and writer, T.S. Eliot was a literary critic whom any author of his time would have begged [...]
