Because of its changes of speaker, location, and time, as well as its numerous literary and cultural references and connections to Eliot's private life, it is often used in the classroom to illustrate how to explicate a poem. Bloom s Modern Critical Interpretations allows students to approach this challenging poem with confidence. Providing carefully selected, full-length critical essays from the foremost literary publications, along with additional study helps, this freshly updated, all-in-one resource is an ideal companion for those undertaking in-depth research projects.

divThis groundbreaking book of literary detective work alters our understanding of T. S. Eliot’s poetic masterpiece, The Waste Land. Lawrence Rainey not only resolves longstanding mysteries surrounding the composition of the poem but also overturns traditional interpretations of the poem that have prevailed for more than eighty years. He shines new light on Eliot’s greatest achievement and on the poem’s place in the modern canon. Far from the austere and sober monument to neoclassicism that admirers have praised, The Waste Land turns out to be something quite different: something grim and wild, unruly and intractable, violent and shocking and radically indeterminate, yet also deeply compassionate. Rainey looks at how Eliot went about writing the poem and at the sequence in which he composed the parts. Arriving at new insights into the poet’s intentions, Rainey unsettles tradition-bound views of the poem and shows us that The Waste Land is even stranger and more startling than we knew./DIV

Essay from the year 2007 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: A2 (highly excellent), University of Edinburgh (Department of English Literature), course: Modernism, 6 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The rise of feminist theory during the last decades provoked a reconsideration of the general focus of interpreting literary texts, and literary criticism has been largely engaged in a rereading of canonical author’s works in terms of gender and sexuality while many definitions underwent a necessary revision. Modernist works, especially poetry, are a rewarding source for an interpretation in these terms since due to their fragmentary, ambivalent nature and lack of thematic clarity they offer much room for different interpretations. With its predominating sexuality, Freudian psychoanalysis and questions of sex and gender sneaked into the modernist world. In this essay I will attempt a reading of T. S. Eliot’s The Waste Land in order to see in how far such issues are implied. 1 My understanding of ‘gender’ follows that of Judith Butler, who pointed out that gender is not only socially constructed in discourse rather than biologically predetermined, but also performative. 2 This is quite evident in Eliot’s poem. Moreover, in modernist texts sexuality seems to lose romance and meaning. In Eliot’s case such a loss seems connected with personal experience. His marriage with Vivien Haigh-Wood was problematic from the beginning on and worsened increasingly, and while working on The Waste Land he had a nervous breakdown. The poem is divided into five parts and features various narrative voices which cannot always be identified unmistakably, especially in terms of the speaker’s gender. In order to examine the depiction of gender and sexuality in the poem, I will proceed mostly chronologically and focus on the depiction of the love relationships. Due to the limited scope of this paper I cannot, by far, include all relevant themes, let alone the numerous other related fragments and themes. The focus is therefore on the hyacinth girl, the Fisher King and Phlebas / Eugenides, the couple and Lil and Philomel, as well as Tiresias and the typist. Images of fertility and homoerotic desire will be considered alongside the character depictions. [...]

In this major new study, Ronald Bush probes the complex relationship between the life and work of T.S. Eliot, "one of the most subjective and daemonic poets who ever lived, the victim and helpless beneficiary of his own inexorable compulsions and obsessions."(Randall Jarrell) Bush demonstrates how Eliot's character was torn by the same conflict that charged his greatest poetry: an almost unbearable tension between romantic yearning and intellectual detachment. Skillfully combining biography and literary analysis, he examines all the factors that contributed to Eliot's personal development and explains why these elements were necessary to the production of his poems. From "Prufrock" and The Waste Land through Four Quarters , Bush traces Eliot's journey of artistic development and relates how his work set the standard for all of twentieth-century writing. An indispensable and beautifully crafted work, T.S. Eliot: A Study in Character and Style makes a major contribution to the scholarship on one of this century's most significant artists.
