The Waste Land by T.S. Eliot /by Fiona Shaw /by TouchPress….



The Waste Land by T.S. Eliot /by Fiona Shaw /by TouchPress. These are at least 3 good reasons to check out the app. Fiona Shaw’s video performance of the poem is splendid. But the app contains 7 more audio recordings by e.g. Jeremy Irons, Sir Alec Guinness and Eliot himself. A facsimile and commentary notes make this app a leading example for literature on tablets.

à propos, when taking the screenshot above I settled by chance on the section about nothing. Watch how Fiona Shaw talks about nothing (and theatre and the rhythm of language) at the Rubin Museum of Art in New York City.
