Customer ReviewsSee All
So i was cycling forward to get to the poetry, and I must have accidentally dragged the thing at the bottom because I got to the end without seeing poetry, and boy was I angry, but i doublechecked and found the poetry, and I am very pleased to find a book that actually contains the poetry of a more dated author, rather than being a school cheat sheet. And for such a modest price!
Collected Works of T.S. Eliot
T.S. Eliot is without a doubt the best poet of the twentieth century, possibly the finest poet ever. His contributions to poetry and to literature in general, are persistently evident. Eliot hits dead on with poetry perfect in structure, sound, and balance. There is the man here, the author as reflected in his own work, but there is also universal human knowledge through looking at the past and reflecting on man's connection with the eternal.
Good poetry, mediocre book
All Eliot's well known poems are here with the exception of "Ash-Wednesday" and the "Four Quartets." Thus the two stars.
Problems? How about an ebook with hyperlinks that doesn't bother to hyperlink the footnotes in "The Waste Land"? How about "Greek text inserted here" in the place of the epigram for "Sweeney Among the Nightingales" and in line in some of the other poems? How about Eliot's Wikipedia article being included, without credit, as an author bio?
At least the book was cheap. I look forward to paying more for a proper edition of Eliot in the future.
