Selected Essays of T. S. Eliot by T. S. Eliot

Image of Selected Essays of T. S. Eliot

This is the first large and representative book of T. S. Eliot's prose and it is being published just at the time when Mr. Eliot is returning to America for the Harvard lectures. A year ago Edmund Wilson wrote: The extent of Eliot's influence is amazing.... T. S. Eliot has done more than perhaps any other modem critic to effect a revaluation of English literature. He has brought back to English criticism something of that trenchant rationalism which he admires in the 18th century, but with a much more catholic appreciation of different styles and points of view.
