Eliot’s Early Poetry in Perspective

Front Cover
Atlantic Publishers & Dist, 2001 - Christianity in literature - 160 pages
T.S. Eliot Remains One Of The Most Widely Read Poets Of The 20Th Century, And Perhaps The Greatest. There Has, However, Been Quite A Dearth Of Critical Material On His Early Poetry Which Has Largely Perplexed Literary Critics. This Book Provides, For The First Time, A Lucid Exposition Of Prufrock And Other Observations 1917 And Poems 1920. Viewing The Poems In The Larger Context Of The Poet-Critic S Life And Works, It Repudiates A Great Many Assumptions About His Early Poetry, Bridges The Artificial Gulf Between The Early And The Later Work, And Makes For Greater Clarity Of Understanding. A Fascinating Study Of Eliot S Spiritual Odyssey, It Would Definitely Appeal To Lovers Of His Poetry.
