T.S. Eliot est un poète difficile, même pour les anglophones. Je ne le recommanderais pas à quelqu'un qui n'a pas une bonne connaissance de l'anglais et qui ne serait pas sensible à la poésie. Le choix des oeuvres me paraît judicieux. Une petite introduction eût été bienvenue.

. 30 décembre 2004
Par jjsnlee - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Hard to reconcile Ezra Pound the poet, with such a beautiful sense for the rhythms and melodies of the English language, and so sensitive to his time and place in the literary tradition, with the man who broadcast propaganda for the Italians during the Second World War, whose preference was for the Fascists because of their sense of style. Mishima also comes to mind, with impeccable aesthetics, totalitarian politics.

In any case if the politico-poetic schism doesn't bother you, this slim collection is a wonderful introduction to this important Modernist. His Cantos were overreaching and sprawling -- some of the poems here have the glint of lyric perfection. I am especially fond of the Cathay poems, and of those Exile's Letter is my favorite. His translation is crystalline, the words flow like water, of all his poems, translations or otherwise, I feel this is among the most perfect -- not for greatness of idea or emotion, but for its subtlety and lyricism.

He reaches such moments in parts of the Pisan Cantos ("What thou lovest well remains, the rest is dross"), but it's a bit funny that he had T.S. Eliot whittle down The Waste Land, but he himself didn't have the discipline to pare down his own work. This might be why his translations (The Seafarer, The River Merchant's Wife) seem to be more anthologized, and considered the more accessible portion of his work -- the limits of these poems were already in place, holding his ambition in check, thus allowing him to concentrate on the language, which he really did so well.

The great Eliot at his greatest 3 octobre 2001
Par A Williams - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
T.S. Eliot is a major figure in 20th century literature for criticism, publishing and poetry. On the critical front he is known for his �rediscovery� of the Metaphysical poets Donne and Marvell, his collections of essays �The Sacred Wood� and �The Use of Poetry and the Use of Criticism�; as a publisher he was a director of Faber and built up a stable of �modern� poets such as Auden and Ezra Pound.
It is, however, for his poetry that he will surely last and this collection gives a marvelous selection of his works. The first poem in this collection �The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock� is a masterwork with superb imagery and a marvelous sense of humour and irony as it gives us the words of a man who seems much older than Eliot must have been when he wrote it, it was first published while he was in his twenties.
While some of his poetry seems to miss the mark as too dense and perhaps overly constructed others have rich layers of imagery and allusion that reward a little effort and rereading with a sense of large and vivid meaning and depth. �The Waste Land�, one of Eliot�s most famous poems and responsible, along with other poems of the period such as �The Hollow Men�, in giving Eliot a reputation as one of the �disillusioned� modern poets. Eliot denied this, saying he gave �the illusion of being disillusioned.� �The Wasteland is four hundred lines long and is quite enigmatic, some scholars have said that it may have been less enigmatic before Ezra Pound helped and convinced Eliot to cut it back from an original 800 lines.
The last major work in this volume is �The Four Quartets.� It is impossible in a short review to summarise the brilliance of these works. Written in the late thirties they are a masterful summation of the concerns of Eliot�s earlier works and a culmination of his examination of his own personal Christianity.
Between these three peaks are many works almost their equal. �Sweeney Agonistes�, �Ash Wednesday�, �The Hollow Men�, and excerpts from the �The Rock� among them.
To conclude this collection is a wonderful summary of the poetic works of one of the major literary figures of the twentieth century. For a complete overview of Eliot you should read at least one of his plays (�Murder In The Cathedral� is my favourite) and one of his volumes of critical essays such as the two mentioned earlier. I would recommend this volume to anyone who enjoys poetry, particularly those who enjoy reading poetry over and over again.

A very good collection of Eliot's poems 28 novembre 2004
Par butterflyeffect67 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
If you can only get one book of poems, get this one. It has the most important poems before "Four Quartets". If you want more,get also "Four Quartets" and "Murder in the Cathedral" or, even better, get the collected poems.

The strange and haunting visions of T.S Eliot 16 mai 2006
Par Menachem Rephun - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
It took me sometime before I could genuinely come to understand and appreciate his poetry: yet, nevertheless, the writings of American-born, anglocized author T.S Eliot have always held a peculiar fascination for me, and, it seems, for a number of other writers and laypeople as well. From the personal yet somehow universal, melancholy and self-doubting music of "The love song of J. Alfred Prufrock" to the wild, multi-cultural, history spanning visions of urban chaos in "The Wasteland", Eliot's oeuvre is rich in religious, political, and philosophical themes, and played an enormous role in shaping the development of poetry in the twentieth-century (not to mention, on an obviously less signficant level, my own writing). Reading Eliot's serious poetry, however, requires a great deal of analytical prowess and is often a rather depressing experience (particularly in the beautiful "Prufrock"): nevertheless, those with patience will find that it is richly rewarding and can be appreciated on a superificial level simply for the entrancing rhythm of the music and haunting nature of the imagery, which, though informed by a number of sources, including Shakespeare, Dante, and Baudelaire, are written in a voice which is always distinctive and wholly original.

Some of the World's Finest Poetry (In my incredibly uneducated opinion) 30 juin 2008
Par Jamie Elliott - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
For some reason most poetry does not really resonate with me. One of the only poets I can stand is T.S. Eliot. His poetry is absurd and lyrical, providing just the barest glimpses at the underlying meaning. But the images stay with me.
