This book provides a comprehensive and stimulating introduction to Eliot's poetry for those reading and studying it, perhaps for the first time. The poems--as well as some of the poetic drama and relevant prose criticism--are discussed in detail and placed in relation to the development of Eliot's oeuvre, to his life, and to a wider context of philosophical and religious enquiry.
