T. S. Eliot was arguably the most important English-language poet of the 20th century. He was also a well respected social critic and playwright. When T. S. Eliot died, wrote Robert Giroux, “the world became a lesser place.” Certainly the most imposing poet of his time, Eliot was revered by Igor Stravinsky “not only as a great sorcerer of words but as the very key keeper of the language.” For Alfred Kazin he was “the mana known as ‘T. S. Eliot,’ the model poet of our time, the most cited poet and incarnation of literary correctness in the English-speaking world.” Northrop Frye simply states: “A thorough knowledge of Eliot is compulsory for anyone interested in contemporary literature. Whether he is liked or disliked is of no importance, but he must be read.”

Description: First U.K. Edition. Hard bound with dust jacket. Some minor wear to dust jacket and one very small closed tear, otherwise very good. Interior clean and binding tight.  An Eliot drama written about Thomas A. Becket (the Archbishop of Canterbury from 1162, until he was assassinated in 1170 as a result of his conflicts with King Henry II of England over the rights and privileges of the Church).
