i'm having trouble choosing how many stars because pretty much all of this poem is over my head. but i like most of the language somehow anyway. i haven't read poetry in many years, and while this is supposed to be one of the most important poems of the 20th century, i probably shouldn't have started with it. i'm way out of practice, and am not familiar with (or don't remember enough from) the works he references. but still, it's somehow more readable (than when i tried to read virgil years ago). hopefully book club will elucidate.
