In honor of the centennial of T.S. Eliot’s landmark poem, The Waste Land, here are ten Waste Land highlights from the Beinecke’s collections.
1. The Waste Land: Typescript
4. First Editions
The Beinecke has ten options to choose from. To start, you might try the copy containing notes from Donald Gallup (Gallup Eliot A6a, Copy: 2), or the copy belonging to William Carlos Williams (Za EL466 922W, Copy: 4).
This research was compiled by Isabel Prioleau, a student research assistant in the Beinecke’s Yale Collection of American Literature, and a member of Yale College ‘25.
