Barnes & Noble Classics pulls together a constellation of influences<U+0151>biographical, historical, and literary<U+0151>to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works. <P style=MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt class=MsoNormal>Considered the most important poem of the twentieth century, T. S. Eliot's The Waste Land is an oblique and fascinating view of the hopelessness and confusion of purpose in modern Western civilization. Published in 1922<U+0151>the same year as Joyce's equally monumental Ulysses<U+0151>The Waste Land is a series of fragmentary dramatic monologues and cultural quotations that crossfade into one another. Eliot believed that this style best represented the fragmentation of society, and his poem portrays a sterile world of panicky fears and barren lusts, and of human beings waiting for some sign or promise of redemption. Mirroring the destruction and disillusionment of World War I, The Waste Land had the effect of a bomb exploded in a genteel drawing room, just as its author intended. This volume also includes Prufrock and Other Observations (1917) and Poems (1919). Prufrock contains the poem that first put Eliot on the map, <U+0147>The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, in which the title character is tormented by the difficulty of articulating his complex feelings. Among other masterpieces, Poems features Gerontion, a meditative interior monologue in blank verse<U+0151>a poem like none before it in the English language. <P style=MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt> <P style=MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt>Randy Malamud is Professor of English and Associate Chair of the department at Georgia State University. His specialty is modern literature, and he has written three books and numerous articles about T. S. Eliot
