Initial Impression of The Waste Land
My initial impression of "The Waste Land" so far is that it is basically a hodgepodge of literary references. I know that it is a historic and renowned piece, but I am still disappointed. I liked "The Love Song of Alfred J. Prufrock" a lot, but I did not really feel a connection to this poem at all. I understand the significance of it is that T.S. Eliot is able to connect so many different pieces of literature so fluidly, however I still have not been able to really get into it. I think that I must have found "The Love Song of Alfred J. Prufrock" to be a lot more lyrical perhaps..
