What did Allen Ginsberg write inside his copy of The Waste Land?

Two years after graduating from Columbia, while working in New York as a market researcher, Ginsberg purchased a 1936 edition of T.S. Eliot’s Collected Poems 1909-1935. Ginsberg’s extensive annotations to The Waste Land document his efforts to work through the poem.
