'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.'
'The Waste Land is one of the most important poems of the 20th century.'
Eliot's Waste Land is I think the justification of the "movement", of our modern experiment, since 1900.
The Waste Land is unquestionably important, unquestionably brilliant . . . One of the most moving and original poems of our time.
'The Waste Land is Mr Eliot's greatest achievement.'
The Waste Land remains a great positive achievement, and one of the first importance for English poetry. In it a mind fully alive in the age compels a poetic triumph.
