I'm loving TS Eliot's poems. Like every other high school English student, I read and adored Prufrock and the Waste Land (listen to him read it - hauntingly eerie), but left his other work mostly untouched.

I'm happy now that I'm rediscovering him. The poems are more melodic as a whole than most other collections I've read, very fluid and full of awesome sound-energy. I find myself turning off even low music in the background so that I can read them out loud to myself (nerd alert).

"Because I do not hope to turn again
Because I do not hope
Because I do not hope to turn" .

..I just LOVE this.

I also like the religious overtones. Very powerful!
