In this collection of critical essays, eminent poet T. S. Eliot discusses several of the issues of modernist writing. The best-known essay of the collection, "Tradition and the Individual Talent," puts forth Eliot's theory of a literary tradition that comprises the whole of European literature from Homer to the present, and of the relationship of the individual poet to that tradition. Another notable essay is "Hamlet and His Problems," in which Eliot expresses his theory of the "objective correlative." The book also includes Eliot's thoughts on Marlowe, Jonson, Massinger, and Dante. An important work for anyone who is seriously interested in poetry or literary criticism.

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.
