Jewel Spears Brooker presents the most comprehensive gathering of newspaper and magazine reviews of Eliot's work ever assembled. Including reviews from both American and British journals, Brooker expands on major themes within the reviews to demonstrate how they influenced not only Eliot, but also literary history in the twentieth century. Widely regarded as one of the most important and influential poets of the twentieth century, T.S. Eliot was also extremely prolific. This volume is a testament to both aspects of his work.

Editorial Reviews

"These reviews are often remarkably insightful at the same time that they reveal divergences that continue to the present." Books and Culture, Daniel Taylor, Bethel College
