Introduction to T. S. Eliot and The Waste Land

Dr. White’s introduction to T. S. Eliot’s The Wasteland begins with a brief description of the origins of poetry, which White describes as the oldest of all literary art forms; a form transmitted orally long before it was ever written down. He demonstrates how Eliot became our own poetic voice, and he explores The Wasteland as a bleak poem that has the power to uplift us, and which has been called a revolution in poetry.
