About the Author

T.S. ELIOT (1888-1965), banker, lecturer, poet, playwright and editor, a graduate of Harvard, a student at the Sorbonne and at Oxford, was considered one of the 20th century's major poets. He received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1948. Eliot was born in St. Louis, Missouri, and moved to England in 1914, where he became a British citizen in 1927.

Reviews

"Vijay Seshadri's Introduction to Eliot is one of the best things that I've ever read on Eliot. Maybe the best--an astonishment, after a lifetime of reading about Eliot. Sample: "'The Waste Land' is overpowering in its sense of the isolation of the spirit trapped in violent materiality." I don't know of another essay that so compellingly sets out how unique, how bold the poems are, how radical."--Frank Bidart
