Has anyone read the poem The Waste Land?  If so what are your thoughts on it?

You've almost got to have a concordance to read T. S. Eliot's The Waste Land.  Once you know what he's refering to, you realize it's a brilliant piece of work--and more than likely it was written by his wife, who is suspected to have written the best of his writings before he sent her away to die at an insane asylum.
