    Sounds interesting, I'm not generally a fan of Poetry (it just seems a bit pointless to me) but I expect I'll pick this up if it's a t a reasonable price

    Hmm. I'm not a big reader of poetry. Not a total stranger to it though. I would hate to say it was pointless, rather it seems to me there are many points to poetry, it's the abastractedness of the form that can seem a bit silly. If you have a point to get across then why not just use plain English? From what I gather IMB was rather influenced by The Wasteland, and a lot of his literature does have a similar allusive quality to it rather like the poem. If the Wasteland seems a bit vague to me 90 years after it was published then maybe the works of IMB will seem like that to my grandchildren.
