    I would not presume to offer anything approaching a definitive judgment of this unique and influential poem, a poem which presents us in early modernist fashion with a provocative collage of voices and scenes, fragments which Eliot has collected from the heap of broken images that litter the desert of our culture, but which he presents in a way that grants them new terror and new poignancy, in a way that shows us fear in a handful of dust and hints if only by its absence at the possibility I would not presume to offer anything approaching a definitive judgment of this unique and influential poem, a poem which presents us in early modernist fashion with a provocative collage of voices and scenes, fragments which Eliot has collected from the heap of broken images that litter the desert of our culture, but which he presents in a way that grants them new terror and new poignancy, in a way that shows us fear in a handful of dust and hints if only by its absence at the possibility of a greener world to come.First off, let me say I was disappointed in this little edition I picked it up initially because it contained an introduction by Paul Maldoon, an Irish poet with a reputation for allusiveness and obscurity just the sort to illuminate this fragmentary and cryptic masterpi...
