Reflecting the surge of critical interest in Eliot renewed in recent years, A Companion to T.S.

Leading scholars in the field provide a fresh and fully comprehensive collection of contextual and critical essays on his life and achievement.
  • It compiles the most comprehensive and up-to-date treatment available of Eliot's work and career
  • It explores the powerful forces that shaped Eliot as a writer and thinker, analyzing his body of work and assessing his oeuvre in a variety of contexts: historical, cultural, social, and philosophical
  • It charts the surge in critical interest in T.S. Eliot since the early 1990s
  • It provides an illuminating insight into a poet, writer, and critic who continues to define the literary landscape of the last century

Author Bio

David E. Chinitz, Professor of English at Loyola University Chicago, is the author of T. S. Eliot and the Cultural Divide (2003) and Which Sin to Bear? Authenticity and Compromise in Langston Hughes (2013). He is currently first vice president of the Modernist Studies Association and past president of the T. S. Eliot Society.

Editorial Reviews

"As a resource for both scholars and students the book is very strong, and stand-out contributions come from John Xiros Cooper, on Eliot's social critiques (pp. 287-97), and John Timberman Newcomb's reconsideration of Eliot's influence as an editor (pp. 399-410), in which he notes the sometimes overlooked role Eliot played not only in British modernism but also, with Pound, in shaping the public face of the likes of Oppen, Louis Zukofsky, and Marianne Moore. The collection as a whole, finely edited by Chinitz, will be a necessary reference for students." (Ywes, 28 August 2011)

"The articles are fully informative, readable and stimulating.  There are mostly free of unnecessary abstraction and of trendy jargon.  Students, teachers and all readers interested in literature and poetry will enjoy-and benefits from- this companion." (Emerald, November 2010)

"A Companion to T. S. Eliot is a necessity for any college or university library and a worthwhile investment for your personal library. You will use it and reuse it, and you'll encourage your students to do the same. If Eliot's criticism influenced so much of what came after him, let's hope this volume influences literary scholarship as it's practiced today, inspiring us to teach instead of dazzle, to value quality over quantity, and to "reduce, reuse, and recycle" in order to produce a more sustaining and sustainable body of criticism." (Davidson College, Summer 2010)

"This Contextual Encyclopedia is a superb introduction to the wealth and diversity of world literature for school and students-both within and beyond the US-and for the reader." (Reference Reviews, April 2010)
