The Waste Land and Other Poems by T S Eliot Perhaps the most admired poem of
the last century, Eliot’s haunting survey of a spiritually bankrupt post-war world
retains its air of beauty and mystery, no matter how often one reads it. The group
considers it in the context of other early Eliot poetry, from the curdled lyricism of
Prufrock to works that show the beginnings of the author’s turn to Christian faith.
