Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“This book will take its place as the standard edition of one of the most important documents of twentieth-century literature in English.”—Ronald Bush, Drue Heinz Professor of American Literature, Oxford University

"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

"Rainey’s edition combines impressive scholarship with a readable and expert presentation of the poem and its background. Students will find it invaluable—and so will their teachers."—David Chinitz, author of T. S. Eliot and the Cultural Divide
