Description

In this fascinating and revealing book, first published in 1952, Maxwell shows the development of Eliot’s poetry and poetic thought in the light of his political and religious attachments. This study traces Eliot’s style from the earliest poems to the Quartets, and examines the characteristics of Eliot’s earlier work adumbrate that of his maturity. The Poetry of T. S. Eliot is essential reading for students of literature.
