On The Waste Land

The Waste Land and Modernity tried to figure out whether someone who captured modern life so well could really dislike it so much.

When he stared out at a world of radio and cinema, of radical art and universal suffrage, did T.S. Eliot really see only a barren, featureless plain? See, for example: The Waste Land describes a sickness, without a prescription.

Perhaps listening to Eliot himself read The Waste Land can give us clues?
