This is considered the first comprehensive interpretation of Eliot's poetry, addressing some of the difficulties associated with his work, especially in its early critical and public reception. It's literary critcism with a Jungian interpretation of Eliot's symbolism & it remains a major & distinguished source on Eliot. The Elizabeth Drew Fiction Prize is awarded by Smith College in Massachusetts for the best fiction written by an undergraduate. This was her first published book. "We read poetry because the poets, like ourselves, have been haunted by the inescapable tyranny of time and death; have suffered the pain of loss, and the more wearing, continuous pain of frustration and failure; and have had moods of unlooked-for release and peace. They have known and watched in themselves and others." --- Elizabeth Drew, quoted in The Columbia World of Quotations, 1966. Bookseller Inventory # 500905
