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, l. a. tierra baldía es una obra esencial para entender nuestro tiempo. Con una dicción y unas imágenes rompedoras, T. S. Eliot sabe cantar los angeles devastación de los angeles primera guerra mundial, los angeles adecuación del hombre a los angeles ciudad como nuevo y definitivo exilio de los angeles naturaleza, el deseo difícil entre mujeres y hombres, y convocar a los angeles vez las voces del pasado literario de Occidente. Pero más allá del intimidante virtuosismo técnico y de l. a. 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 imperative para entender el resto de su poesía, este libro viene a recordarnos, cuando se cumplen cincuenta años de su muerte, l. a. vigencia, los angeles ambición y el ejemplo de un poeta, un crítico y un editor que consiguió crear una nueva visión del mundo contemporáneo.

In other words, a culture that continually banks on panic would naturally produce overdrawn (that is, representing economic lack as well as stylistic excess) accounts, if you will, not only at the bank but in the culture’s literature as well. Indeed, it is well to remember Adam Smith’s turn to literature to fill gaps in the relationship between cause and effect: literature, particularly the Gothic, fills the gap that opens up in economics when that science views emotional and psychological accounts of the subject’s reactions to economic panic as illegitimate data.
66 It should also be noted that there were many smaller crises interspersed between the major ones. 67 Virtually every economic history of England notes, and is haunted, if you will, by the turbulence. ’’68 Though individual circumstances were different, the bizarreness lasted well into the 1890s. ’’69 Clearly, if the ur-homo economicus was firmly established in nineteenth-century Britain, part of his profile was to exist in conditions in which economic crisis was a norm. In part, the title of this chapter, ‘‘Banking on panic,’’ refers to the Victorian capacity for dealing with a recurrent state of economic instability at a time when banking, banking panics, and the notion of ‘‘the economy’’ Banking on panic 15 were being defined.
More than any other nineteenth-century figure, Karl Marx speaks with a voice of prophecy fueled by profound panic. Indeed, to read Marx, one might conjecture that as long as capitalism exists there will always be reincarnations of the Gothic, for despite the West’s triumphant exclamations about Communism’s burial in the 1990s, Marx’s specter has not vanished from the intellectual terrain. Writing in the same time period as the novels I examine, Marx suggests that capitalism is a fiction-making entity that creates the brilliant but mad conditions within which its subjects exist.
