  • Word Unheard

    A Guide Through Eliot's Four Quartets, 1st Edition

    By Harry Blamires

    Eliot’s Four Quartets is arguably the finest long poem in modern English literature. It is also one that presents considerable problems of interpretation.

  • Vocation and Desire

    George Eliot's Heroines, 1st Edition

    By Dorothea Barrett

    First published in 1989. Generations of critics have seen George Eliot as a conservative Victorian high moralist and sybil.

    By Kerry McSweeney

    First published in 1984.

  • The Waste Land

    1st Edition

    By Grover Smith

    In this study, first published in 1983, Professor Smith makes the argument that although The Waste Land is analogous in form to a musical composition that it is actually made of its literary echoes.

  • The English Eliot

    Design, Language and Landscape in Four Quartets, 1st Edition

    By Steve Ellis

    This book, first published in 1991, supplies a neglected cultural context for T. S. Eliot’s writings of the 1930s and 1940s, particularly Four Quartets, and attempts to disprove the widespread belief in Eliot’s unproblematic commitment to England, and the ‘Englishness’. The book traces Eliot’s…

  • Yeats, Eliot, Pound and the Politics of Poetry

    Richest to the Richest, 1st Edition

    By Cairns Prof. Craig

    It has long been recognised that there is an apparently paradoxical relationship between the revolutionary poetic style developed by Yeats, Eliot and Pound in the period during and after the First World War, and the reactionary politics with which they were associated in the 1920s and 1930s.…

  • T. S. Eliot's Romantic Dilemma

    Tradition's Anti-Traditional Elements, 1st Edition

    By Eugenia M. Gunner

    The fact that Eliot disapproved of Romanticism is clear from his critical essays, where he often appears to reject it absolutely. However, Eliot’s understanding of the term and his appreciation of literature developed and altered greatly from his adolescence to his years of scholarly study, yet he…
