Thomas Stearns Eliot (1888-1965) was a poet, a dramatist and a literary critic. His works The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock (1917), The Waste Land (1922), The Hollow Men (1925), and Four Quartets (1945) were considered major achievements of twentieth century Modernist poetry. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1948. Although he was born an American, he moved to the United Kingdom in 1914 (at age 25) and was naturalised as a British subject in 1927 at age 39. French poetry was a strong influence on Eliot's works, in particular that of Charles Baudelaire, whose clear-cut images of Paris city life provided a model for Eliot's own images of London. In his critical and theoretical writing, he was known for his advocacy of the "objective correlative, " the notion that art should not be a personal expression, but should work through objective universal symbols. He died of emphysema in London in 1965.

Book Description:

The Sacred Wood by T. S. Eliot has - like most of the Nobel Prize-winner's work - become essential reading for anybody interested in poetry, literature, or the history and culture of England. Including 'Tradition and the Individual Talent', 'Hamlet and his Problems' and analyses of writers such Christopher Marlowe, Ben Jonson and Dante.

About the Author:

T. S. Eliot, (1888-1965) recast 20th century English poetry with a whole new vocabulary of technique, giving voice to a bold, vibrantly original Modernist style. In addition to his poetry, his body of work includes many landmark critical essays, as well as plays such as The Cocktail Party and Murder in the Cathedral. In 1948, he won the Nobel Prize for Literature.
