""The Annotated Waste Land is a nearly indispensable tool for scholars and students alike. With clear, balanced, and well-written scholarship, Lawrence Rainey soothes, with knowledge, our anxiety about approaching Eliot's famously difficult poem and allows us much easier access to the poem's greatness. I raced through the book, cover to cover, with pleasure and profit, and I will, I'm sure, return to it frequently."-Andrew Hudgins, author of "After the Lost War"
