Thanks, CR, Pearce is always an interesting commentator. I liked some of his remarks about Eliot and TWL, especially his saying, "The Waste Land is a difficult poem, but it's not that difficult"! There's a different perspective. But he does make some nice observations to back it up, enough to make checking out his book a priority. Will have to listen again to get the title. Anyhow, good find.

T.S. Eliot and “The Waste Land

By Joseph Pearce

“The Waste Land is the quintessential debunking of modernity and is also, simultaneously, a potent antidote to the poison of postmodernism.”

— Joseph Pearce (Nov. 22, 2010, St. Austin Review

A reading close to my heart.
