About the Author:

THOMAS STEARNS ELIOT was born in St Louis, Missouri, in 1888. He moved to England in 1914 and published his first book of poems in 1917. He received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1948. Eliot died in 1965.

Review:

"We sometimes hear it said of an iconoclastic essayist like Mark Twain or Russell Baker that he is a 'national treasure.' I vote to include Barbara Holland in this treasure chest."-The Philadelphia Inquirer
"Though Holland obviously means what she writes, she also is having good fun, not merely mourning and celebrating what has been lost but also taking well-aimed whacks at inviting targets."-The Washington Post

Book Description Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, United States, 1993. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. When the New York Public Library announced in October 1968 that its Berg Collection had acquired the original manuscript of The Waste Land, one of the most puzzling mysteries of twentieth-century literature was solved. The mansucript was not lost, as had been believed, but had remained among the papers of John Quinn, Eliot s friend and adviser, who had received it from the poet in 1922. If the discovery of the manuscript was startling, its content was ever more so, because the published version of The Waste Land was considerably shorter than the original. How it was reduced and edited is clearly revealed on the manuscript through the handwritten notes of Ezra Pound, Eliot himself, and his first wife. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780156948708
