Few admirers of the criticism of T.S. Eliot have been able to read anything but summaries or extracts from the eight unpublished lectures on metaphysical poetry that he gave at Trinity College, Cambridge in 1926, or the revised sequence delivered in Baltimore in 1933. Eliot's theme in the lectures is the relations and affinities between the poetry of Donne, Crashaw and Cowley in the 17th century, Dante and Cavalcanti in the 13th and certain French poets of the late 19th century - notably Laforgue and Corbiere.
