About The Waste Land. Much of the power of The Waste Land derives from the allusions and name-dropping peppered heavily throughout the poem, in a style often described as fragmented or collage-like. This kind of fragmentation, as variously practiced by Eliot, Ezra Pound, Marianne Moore, and others, was one of the defining features of Modernist poetry in English.

Eliot's "The Waste Land" has been called "one of the most important poems of the 20th Century" and it might actually be one of the most important poems ever. In its original draft, the poem was almost twice as long as the published version. Maybe what Eliot should have been concerned about was penning a poem that's considered incomprehensible by many first-time readers the world over. The poem constantly shifts between different speakers without warning, and it's chock full of references to classic literature from cultures all over the world, many of which are more than a little obscure.
The Waste Land' signified the movement from Imagism – optimistic, bright-willed to modernism, itself a far darker, disillusioned way of writing. Drawing allusions from everything from the Fisher King to Buddhism, The Waste Land was published in 1922, and remains one of the most important Modernist texts to date. Modernist poetry, itself a calling-back to older ways of writing, and developing, in part, as a response to overwrought Victorian poetry, started in the early years of the 20th century, with the intent of bringing poetry to the layman – similar to Wordworth‘s attempt over a hundred years before.
