“He Can No Longer Refuse to Recognize the Limitations of His Medium”

T.S. Eliot

On this date in 1923, an anonymous reviewer in the Times Literary Supplement pans T.S. Eliot’s The Waste Land: “He can no longer refuse to recognize the limitations of his medium; he is sometimes walking very near the limits of coherency.” You can read the poem, now considered one of the most important poems of the 20th century, here: http://www.bartleby.com/201!1.html
