April is the cruellest month, breeding Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing Memory and desire, stirring Dull roots with spring rain. Winter kept us warm, covering Earth in forgetful snow, feeding A little life with dried tubers. Summer surprised us, coming over the Starnbergersee With a shower of rain; we stopped in the colonnade, And went on in sunlight, into the Hofgarten, And drank coffee, and talked for an hour. Bin gar keine Russin, stamm' aus Litauen, echt deutsch.

Review:

The Waste Land is unquestionably important, unquestionably brilliant The poem must be taken most invitingly offers itself as a brilliant and kaleidoscopic confusion; as a series of sharp, discrete, slightly related perceptions and feelings, dramatically and lyrically presented, and violently juxtaposed It shimmers, it suggests, it gives the desired strangeness One of the most moving and original poems of our time. --Conrad Aiken"

We know of no other modern poet who can more adequately and movingly reveal to us the inextricable tangle of the sordid and the beautiful that make up life.

[An achievement] of the first importance for English poetry. In it a mind fully alive in the age compels a poetic triumph.--F. R. Leavis

The Waste Land is unquestionably important, unquestionably brilliant...The poem must be taken--most invitingly offers itself--as a brilliant and kaleidoscopic confusion; as a series of sharp, discrete, slightly related perceptions and feelings, dramatically and lyrically presented, and violently juxtaposed...It shimmers, it suggests, it gives the desired strangeness...One of the most moving and original poems of our time. --Conrad Aiken
