The Cambridge Companion to T. S. Eliot Paperback
Edited by A. David Moody
Part of the Cambridge Companions to Literature series
In this Companion, an international team of leading T.
S. Eliot scholars contribute studies of different facets of the writer's work to build up a carefully co-ordinated and fully rounded introduction.
Five chapters give a complete account of Eliot's poems and plays from several distinct points of view.
The major aspects and issues of his life and thought are assessed: his American origins and his becoming English; his position as a philosopher; his literary, social, and political criticism; and the evolution of his religious sense.
Later chapters place his work in a number of historical perspectives; and the final chapter provides an expert review of the whole field of Eliot studies and is supplemented by a listing of the most significant publications.
There is a useful chronological outline. Taken as a whole, the Companion comprises an essential handbook for students and other readers of Eliot.
