    In the upcoming book The World Broke in Two by Bill Goldstein, Virginia Woolf is pleased by hearing The Wasteland read by Eliot Several times she mentions that she has not read the poem but only listened to it I did the same with the Audible edition There is something to gain in listening.

    This is one of my favorite books of all time and to prove it, I named my dog Prufrock I wanted to put a picture of him here for you SO BAD that after stoically refusing for a million years, I finally opened a Flickr account so I upload my pix on GR So here is a shot of the time the cutest dog ever did the cutest thing ever and I actually died.

    I think The Waste Land and the other poems in this collection Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock, and Gerontion, Portrait of a Lady and Four Quartets are brilliant That said, I have to sort of hold T.S Eliot responsible for everything I hate about modern poetry Obviously T Stearns isn t wholly to blame, and I think he has a genius of his own, but I think that his influence on many of his poetic successors has mostly led to a disgusting pretension in poetry, which superficially veils I think The Waste Land and the other poems in this collection Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock, and Gerontion, Portrait of a Lady and Four Quartets are brilliant That said, I have to sort of hold T.S Eliot responsible for everything I hate about modern poetry Obviously T Stearns isn t wholly to blame, and I think he has a genius of his own, but I think that his influence on many of his poetic successors has mostly led to a disgusting pretension in poetry, which superficially veils emotions, quotes Latin, and ra...
