9780142437315: THE Waste Land and Other Poems (Penguin Classics)

While recovering from a mental collapse in a Swiss sanitarium in 1921, T. S. Eliot finished what became the definitive poem of the modern condition, one that still casts a large and ominous shadow over twentieth-century poetry. Built upon the imagery of the Grail legend, the Fisher King, and ancient fertility cults, "The Waste Land" is both a poetic diagnosis of an ailing civilization and a desperate quest for spiritual renewal. Through pastiche and collage Eliot unfolds a nightmarish landscape of sexual disorder and spiritual desolation, inhabited by the voice (literary, historical, mythic, contemporary) of an unconscious that is at turns deeply personal and culturally collective. This edition includes "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock," "Portrait of a Lady," "Gerontion," and more.

Product Description:

[ The Waste Land and Other Poems By ( Author ) Feb-2003 Paperback

Review:

"[This edition provides] a truly impressive density of contextualizing materials that will help open Eliot's first three books of poetry to twenty-first century conversations. The annotations to The Waste Land in particular are thorough without being obtrusive, and the new materials on anti-Semitism and gender are spot on."--Michael Coyle, author of Ezra Pound, Popular Genres, and the Discourse of Culture

"The Broadview edition of The Waste Land and Other Poems seems to me an excellent text for classroom use. Students will appreciate the notes, which provide helpful and straightforward guidance not only on literary allusions but on such no-longer-familiar details of everyday life as 'sprinkled streets, ' curl papers, and putting one's 'shoes at the door.' The introductory material is clear and informative, and the contextual material gathered in the last section of the book would enrich any course on modernism."--David Chinitz, chair of theT.S. Eliot Society

"Broadview's recent Anthology of British Literature is an exciting achievement. Broadview has accomplished what no other anthology to date has been able to do.... Its introductory essays and useful appendices successfully reflect current scholarship while remaining student-centered.... With an impressive selection of literary works, an equally impressive collection of visual images, and an exemplary emphasis on print culture and history of the language, The Broadview Anthology not only rivals the Norton and the Longman, it sets a new standard by which all other anthologies of British literature will now have to be measured."--Graham Hammill on The Broadview Anthology of British Literature

"The simple fact is that a major work of student-centered scholarship has arrived in the field of English studies, and The Broadview Anthology of British Literature is no mere pretender to the throne long held by the Norton: it is the new standard."--Richard Nordquist on The Broadview Anthology of British Literature
