Eliot's The Waste Land reflects the profound sense of disillusionment that emerged in the wake of World War I. 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.
