'Each year Eliot's presence reasserts itself at a deeper level, to an audience that is surprised to find itself more chastened, more astonished, more humble.' Ted Hughes

This edition of Collected Poems 1909-1962 includes his verse from Prufrock and Other Observations (1917) to Four Quartets (1943), and includes such literary landmarks as The Waste Land and Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats .

Perhaps most often read by college students, Eliot's "The Wasteland" bears revisiting, for many reasons. Read it again to remember why it is considered essential. (and a portal to current techniques of appropriation and remixing, as well). His other poems are also notable.
