La tierra baldía (y Prufrock y otras observaciones) by T. S. Eliot

By T. S. Eliot

El mayor poema del siglo XX «La temible Tierra baldía de T. S. Eliot vuelve a vivir en los angeles versión de Andreu Jaume.»
Félix de Azúa, El País

Además de ser el gran poema del siglo XX, La tierra baldía es una obra esencial para entender nuestro tiempo. Con una dicción y unas imágenes rompedoras, T.S. Eliot sabe cantar l. a. devastación de l. a. primera guerra mundial, l. a. adecuación del hombre a los angeles ciudad como nuevo y definitivo exilio de l. a. naturaleza, el deseo difícil entre mujeres y hombres, y convocar a l. a. vez las voces del pasado literario de Occidente. Pero más allá del intimidante virtuosismo técnico y de los angeles intensidad estética que el poema desata, en estos versos emociona sobre todo los angeles desnuda humanidad que estalla en silencio.

Editado, prologado y traducido por Andreu Jaume, que también nos da su versión de Prufrock, el primer poemario de Eliot y referente critical para entender el resto de su poesía, este libro viene a recordarnos, cuando se cumplen cincuenta años de su muerte, l. a. vigencia, l. a. ambición y el ejemplo de un poeta, un crítico y un editor que consiguió crear una nueva visión del mundo contemporáneo.

This pretence is honest because it prompts William to be ‘true’ to himself, realising his talent for sociability. Thus, when Anniball explains that he ‘make[s] account to speake to persons of weake capacitie’, endeavouring in conversation ‘to present them with such thinges as are not out of their reach’, William modestly imagines himself included and his self-deprecating response reveals his capacity to engage in civil conversation: ‘Your discourses shall so much the better content mee’, he offers, ‘by how much the more they shalbe familiar, and suche as are meete for the weakenesse of my understanding’ (2.

After the uncertain opening up of this topic at the end of book 2 (William misunderstands Anniball’s reference to conversation between the two sexes as an allusion to sexual intercourse (2. 234)), Guazzo proceeds in the third book to develop a defence of the humane treatment of wives. Indeed, the family is integral to the safekeeping of a civil society. Men who beat their wives, or treat them like ‘kitchinstuffes’ or slaves are roundly berated while the praises of a loving husband are sung (3. 6; 3.
