Newly revised and in paperback for the first time, this definitive, annotated edition of T. S. Eliot’s The Waste Land includes as a bonus all the essays Eliot wrote as he was composing his masterpiece. Enriched with period photographs, a London map of cited locations, groundbreaking information on the origins of the work, and full annotations, the volume is itself a landmark in literary history.
“More than any previous editor, Rainey provides the reader with every resource that might help explain the genesis and significance of the poem. . . . The most imaginative and useful edition of The Waste Land ever published.”—Adam Kirsch, New Criterion
“For the student or for anyone who wants to get the maximum amount of information out of a foundational modernist work, this is the best available edition.”—Publishers Weekly

Editorial Reviews

""The Annotated Waste Land is a nearly indispensable tool for scholars and students alike. With clear, balanced, and well-written scholarship, Lawrence Rainey soothes, with knowledge, our anxiety about approaching Eliot's famously difficult poem and allows us much easier access to the poem's greatness. I raced through the book, cover to cover, with pleasure and profit, and I will, I'm sure, return to it frequently."-Andrew Hudgins, author of "After the Lost War""
