Description


From the Nobel Prize winning authorand the most influential poet of the twentieth centurycomes a beautiful hardcover Pocket Poets edition that includes the masterpieces “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock and “The Waste Land.”  
 
T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) was the dominant force in twentieth-century British and American poetry. 
 
With his poems, he introduced an edgy, disenchanted, utterly contemporary version of French Symbolism to the English-speaking world. With his masterpiece “The Waste Land,” he almost single-handedly ushered an entire poetic culture into the modern world. And with his enormously influential essays he set the canonical standards to which writers and critics of poetry have adhered throughout our era.
 
Everyman's Library pursues the highest production standards, printing on acid-free cream-colored paper, with full-cloth cases with two-color foil stamping, decorative endpapers, silk ribbon markers, European-style half-round spines, and a full-color illustrated jacket.
