An important moment in Eliot studies.
--Gregory McNamee, University of Arizona, LA Review of Books
This magnificent set of books, The Complete Prose of T.S. Eliot, published at considerable expense and with great care, is a tribute to an important poet and a powerful critic who exerted a genuine influence on the culture of his day. Reading in it, one longs for the time to return when the detritus of the digital age disappears and literature once again occupies a central place in our culture.
