Inhaltsangabe:

Volume One: 1898-1922 presents some 1,400 letters encompassing the years of Eliot's childhood in St. Louis, Missouri, through 1922, by which time the poet had settled in England, married his first wife, and published The Waste Land. Since the first publication of this volume in 1988, many new materials from British and American sources have come to light. More than two hundred of these newly discovered letters are now included, filling crucial gaps in the record and shedding new light on Eliot's activities in London during and after the First World War.

Volume Two: 1923-1925 covers the early years of Eliot's editorship of The Criterion, publication of The Hollow Men, and his developing thought about poetry and poetics. The volume offers 1,400 letters, charting Eliot's journey toward conversion to the Anglican faith, as well as his transformation from banker to publisher and his appointment as director of the new publishing house Faber & Gwyer. The prolific and various correspondence of this volume testifies to Eliot's growing influence as cultural commentator and editor.

Weirdly gripping . . . one never knows when one might be stopped dead by a letter of singular importance. James Longenbach, The Nation--James Longenbach "The Nation ""

Better than any biography could, these letters capture the unremitting nature of Eliot's anxieties, without which he would not have written his greatest poems. Abigail Deutsch, Wall Street Journal--Abigail Deutsch "Wall Street Journal ""

These letters do reveal the anxieties boiled down into The Waste Land. They also show us the graces this browbeaten life possessed. William Logan, New York Times Book Review--William Logan "New York Times Book Review ""
