This is my second time reading The Waste Land, and this time i made sure to understand it- i took an english class that had the book as part of its curriculum. Luckily i didn't have to write any papers, and it was entirely discussion based.

The poem deserves the notoriety it has. Whether you love it or hate it, its a fine work of Lost Generation poetic art.

If youre gonna read it, be sure to read it with others or sparknotes or something, to make sure you can really grasp the poem. Also theres a recording of Eliot reading the poem out there, and i swear he sounds like a magic performer in it.
