T. S. Eliot A Short Biography (Hardcover)
|Author: John Worthen|
|There has been no biography of Eliot since the impact of his early poems were published.|
From the Publisher:
Biographical writing about T. S. Eliot is in a more confused and contested state than is the case with any other major twentieth-century writer. There has been no study of Eliot since the impact of his early poems (Inventions of the March Hare) in 1996, despite the fact that the book radically alters how we might think of him. This book frees itself from the old biographical model of Eliot as cold and unemotional, instead offering a sympathetic study and showing how Eliot's poetry can be read for its revelations about his inner world.
John Worthen is the author of The Gang: Coleridge, the Hutchinsons, & the Wordsworths in 1802.
