L'avevo preso in biblioteca quasi per caso. Avevo come la sensazione che fra me e la poesia di T.S. Eliot ci potesse essere qualche connessione, anche se prima di adesso non avevo mai letto niente. Sapete, quelle sensazioni a pelle. Volevo prendere un altro volume, più .."piccolo", in realtà. Ma il bibliotecario, personcina tanto cara, mi ha mostrato questo, che poteva offrirmi molto di più. Per..una buona parte l'ha fatto.
Devo ammettere che la prima parte, fino a metà de The Waste Land, non mi

حقيقي أنا عندي مشكلة مع ترجمة الشعر الانجليزي ، الترجمة خالية من أي روح شعرية و محاولةمحاكاة المبجل حسن عثمان في نظمه لترجمته الخالدة للكوميديا الإلهية لم تكن موفقة .

نوع من الشعر مختلف
الترجمة كانت رائعة
الصدمة ماكانتش هينة

فيه شعر مختلف تماما عن الشعر اللي الواحد كان غرقان فيه
شعر غالبا لو العرب كتبوه هيبقوا عباقرة
بس ماحدش من بني جلدتهم وجنسهم هيسمعوا
فهيبقوا عباقرة بينهم وبين نفسهم

Eliot's second collection, published in 1920, is my least favorite of his works, and yet, I still love to read these poems. There are a few not in English that must be skipped over, and on the whole they stand together less than his other collections, but there are poems here that are a pleasure to read, like the nonsensical but entertaining "The Hippopotamus."
De mult tot am vrut sa citesc ceva de Eliot - m-am zgait la cartea lui mos Oposum de la Humanitas, dar niciodata mai mult. Apoi am gasit o traducere a lui Mircea Ivanescu si mi-a placut foarte mult. Din pacate volumului asta ii lipseste ceva... poate si traducerea lui Aurel Covaci e de vina.

Asa i-am spus sufletului meu: fii calm si asteapta fara speranta
Pentru ca speranta ar fi o iubire a ceea ce e rau: asteapta fara iubire
Pentru ca iubirea ar fi o iubire a ceea ce e rau: inca mai exista credi
I am reading more poetry these days not only in order to simply enjoy it, but to increase that enjoyment by increasing my understanding. Rather than read books that explain poetry, I just want to read the poetry itself. I'm also reading more of it, because I love how poetry adds to language, description, imagination, and experience.

Perché già tutte le ho conosciute, conosciute tutte: -
Ho conosciuto le sere, le mattine, i pomeriggi,
Ho misurato la mia vita con cucchiaini da caffè;
Let us go then, you and I, When the evening is spread out against the sky Like a patient etherised upon a table...
eliot è in assoluto il mio poeta preferito, lo rileggo in continuazione. consigliatissimo a tutti
