–          T S Eliot’s The Waste Land

Thomas Stearns Eliot was a poet, dramatist and literary critic. He received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1948 “for his outstanding, pioneer contribution to present-day poetry.” He wrote the poems The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, The Waste Land, The Hollow Men, Ash Wednesday, and Four Quartets; the plays Murder in the Cathedral and The Cocktail Party; and the essay Tradition and the Individual Talent. Eliot was born an American, moved to the United Kingdom in 1914 (at the age of 25), and became a British subject in 1927 at the age of 39.

 The text of Eliot’s 1922 masterpiece ‘The Waste Land’ is accompanied by thorough explanatory annotations as well as by Eliot’s own knotty notes, some of which require annotation themselves.
