This collection of poetry is a perfect choice to read as the year winds down. Eliot's themes of cyclical time, endings leading to beginnings, and of religion form a symbiosis to the mood of the Dead Days where time slows and speeds at once in a nonlinear fashion that eventually culminates with the clock striking midnight at the dawning of a New Year.

Featuring selections of many of T. S. Eliot's poems, this collection demonstrates the poet's versatility in topic and style. While I prefer the poems with shorter lines, others probably enjoy the longer ones. It's a great collection for those interested in reading this celebrated 20th century writer's work. ( )

T.S. Eliot surely resides in history as one of the greatest twentieth-century poets in the English language. He spanned the American-English landscape in life as well as in literature. His poetry is replete with imagery yet relatively devoid of obvious meaning. Even a poem entitled “Ash Wednesday” (a seemingly religious topic) skirts on just conjuring a sense of beauty in the reader and avoiding a tone traditionally reminiscent of a church.

Of course, one poem in particular stands out as embodying this persona: “The Wasteland.” This five-part poem consists of a collection of beautiful images that require readers to slow down and to contemplate in order to read. As one of my friends once remarked, “It’s so beautiful, yet I have no clue what it means!” That’s what’s so majestic about Eliot’s poetic sense.

Generally, his verse inspires an other-worldliness and transcendence. His mastery of language was so that he evoked awe without resorting to silly tricks and without relying on prior experience. His poems draw out the universal humanity in us and lure us into psychological archetypes that define us as a species.

Perhaps future generations will see Eliot as being a part of some twentieth-century, modernist-type movement. Perhaps. But my reading of Eliot is that he is always gone out to sea (one of his favorite settings in life and in verse). He lived alone on a plane where the only humanity was inside his soul. He was the idealized solitary genius.

It’s ironic that Eliot converted to Christianity in mid-life. Though I share in confessing this creed, I lack the overwhelming sense of universal humanity that Eliot possesses. Most of expressed Christianity is peculiar to one place, one time, one denomination, one church, or one preacher. Eliot either neglected his Christianity in his writings or saw the world differently than anyone else who has taken up the English language. The way he expressed his vision of the world belongs to the ages.

That’s why its worth anyone’s time to slow down and pick their way through Eliot’s imaginary wordsmithry. From within, his poems elucidate a reality as only he saw it, alone in his expedition, metaphorically out at sea. ( )

It was an ok poem book. I just did really enjoy it because the poems left my mind wondering, and I couldn't fully understand them. ( )

Brilliant still. Not a dent after a century of shining bright. ( )

Let us go then, you and I, / When the evening is spread out against the sky / Like a patient etherised upon a table; / Let us go, through certain half-deserted streets, / The muttering retreats / Of restless nights in one-night cheap hotels / And sawdust restaurants with oyster-shells; / Streets that follow like a tedious argument / Of insidious intent / To lead you to an overwhelming question... / Oh, do not ask, 'What is is?' / Let us go and make our visit.
