Overview

In T.S. Eliot and Our Turning World , fifteen scholars from the United States, Canada, Europe, and Japan examine Eliot's work in the context of his personal history and that of his century. Using both unpublished and newly released primary materials, they analyse and contextualise his poetry in relation to idealist philosophy, popular culture, anti-Semitism, feminism, and literary studies. One critic surveys Eliot's impressive but previously ignored contributions to radio journalism and several consider his controversial but assured centrality in the cultural life of the twentieth century.

Scholars from North America, Europe, and Japan examine US poet Eliot's (1888-1965) work in the context of his personal history and the history of the 20th century. They draw on both unpublished and on newly released primary materials to analyze and contextualize his poetry in relation to idealist philosophy, popular culture, anti-Semitism, feminism, and literary studies. Most of the 15 essays originated as lectures an a 1996 conference in London. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
