In this book, 15 scholars from the US, Canada, Europe, and Japan examine Eliot's work in the context of his personal history and that of his century. Using unpublished and newly released primary materials scholars analyze Eliot's legacy in relation to idealist philosophy, music, popular culture, anti-Semitism, feminism, and literary studies.
Jewel Spears Brooker is Professor of Literature, Eckerd College.
