Overview

T. S. Eliot's The Waste Land by T. S. Eliot

The Waste Land is a 434-line modernist poem by T. S. Eliot published in 1922. It has been called "one of the most important poems of the 20th century." Despite the poem's obscurity�its shifts between satire and prophecy, its abrupt and unannounced changes of speaker, location and time, its elegiac but intimidating summoning up of a vast and dissonant range of cultures and literatures�the poem has become a familiar touchstone of modern literature. Among its famous phrases are "April is the cruellest month," "I will show you fear in a handful of dust.�

Thomas Stearns Eliot (September 26, 1888 � January 4, 1965) was an American publisher, playwright, literary and social critic and "arguably the most important English-language poet of the 20th century He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1948.
