(4.6 stars; 101 reviews)

The Waste Land is T. S. Eliot's Modernist masterpiece, first published in 1920. Rich in allusions to Shakespeare, Dante, Baudelaire, the Bible, Marvell, Buddha, and the folklore of the Holy Grail, among other sources, the poem emphasizes the fundamental fragmentation and lack of connection that characterizes modern life and relationships.

T S ELIOT’s WASTE LAND is not a poem to read in a dark no sun rainy day Coronavirus day When your north neighbor just dug more hope into your safety edges. in order to make their properties into “estates” are killing most of their trees (or my 2 WOODY WOOD PECKERS and their families are pecking trees to death) my north neighbor in improving his lot cause passers by to be able to see my property from the east (previous owner totally cleared my front yard). I am slowly regrowing some trees BUT they will not make a safety impact for decades. i have no money for privacy fence for a 2-acre property. i put a beautiful blue tarp in the woods where i have been able to perceive his or her blue house and lights at night. i cover the north eastern side with ASNATH’s silver satin +- 100 yard fabric which is tacky until i can add more trees WARRING WITH A NEIGHBOR IS NOT GOOD FOR SAFETY unfortunately neither is seeing all the neighbors’ buildings and cars, toys, or having them see all the junks from my property it’s 4:41 and i have not even read my Bible yet SUZIE, AT&T SHOULD NOT BE SUCKING ANY MORE MONEY ๐Ÿ’ฐ FROM YOUR CREDIT. i told AT&T to send me bill and use my email i know you have plenty more to worry about (including how many times per hour you have to answer i'm fine ๐Ÿ™‚ how are? and in your sweet way after saying fine in all its variations to blow up get the ... out of my way i'm fine ๐Ÿ™‚ that's another reason the rough ๐Ÿ™„country life would have helped you be patient Coronavirus cannot last for ever. you'll be back in your paid none lake view parking lot soon enough. THANK YOU ๐Ÿ™ for everything ๐Ÿ™โœ๏ธ

Excellently read

After being disappointed with the first version I found and abandoning it, this is far far better. I could feel my memory flowing along with it.

The mournful voice of the female is an annoyance and inappropriate. No wonder so many boys in school never appreciated this genius of TS Eliot.

This was very well done. It can be hard to stay engaged with this story but Elizabeth reads it so naturally.

Absolutely gorgeous!
