T.S. Eliot Reads The Waste Land

T.S. Eliot’s 1922 poem, The Waste Land, is often considered one of the great poems of the 20th century. Above, you can listen to Eliot himself reading his modernist masterpiece (text here). And, if you want more, how about Eliot reading The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, another major work, against the backdrop of Portishead? Sacrilege, I know.

You can find both poems in our extensive Free Audio Book collection, which contains hundreds of classic works. Fiction, non-fiction, and poetry. It’s all there, and all free.
