The Waste Land

It’s always a pleasure when something in the world of poetry makes the headlines.  Have you heard? T.S. Eliot‘s poem The Waste Land  just topped the Apple Store’s Top Grossing App list.

According to eBookNewser: “T.S. Eliot’s The Waste Land was the top grossing iPad book app in the Apple App store this week. The app has been on the top grossing app list since its debut in iTunes last week. The classic poem knocks Marvel’s comic book app out of the No. 1 spot. The Marvel app has been dominating the list for the past few weeks.”

It’s time to re-read The Waste Land.
