“The Waste Land is a poem in ruins. Written in short, interconnected fragments, it offers a vision of humanity struggling to come to terms with a broken world. For a century, readers have been haunted by the poem’s images, amused by its dark comedy, and absorbed by its array of idiosyncratic characters.” – Dr Julian Lamb
