T. S. Eliot is unanimously considered one of the pillars of twentieth century literature. Because few poets have written such lucid essays. Because few writers have constructed such influential poems.

His essays, Tradition and the Individual Talent for instance, influenced the course of modern Literary Theory and are a must in the library of any student of literature. And although some of his poems are almost a century old, they are still present in conversations and studies anywhere in the world.

Speak. Think.

In 1922, the year of publication of Joyce's Ulysses, came to light The Waste Land. It was a good year for English modernism.

The Waste Land is a poem of 400 verses where dialogue, monologue and experimentation come together in all aspects. Ezra Pound himself was one of its first readers, and even helped Eliot with its revision. The Waste Land is a long, cryptic poem, where unexpected and moving fragments loom, shine and inspire this design.

Harold Bloom has called The Waste Land “indisputably the most influential poem written in English in the twentieth century.
