An interesting but irregular book of poetry. "The waste land" itself I should definitely rate higher, as it is a huge and powerful piece. The other poems, however, are sometimes good, sometimes bad; half of them are 'skippable'. Poems like "Prufrock", "Gerontion", "Portrait of a lady" and some others make up for that though and give the book as a whole its three star status.
