Editorial Reviews

"As a resource for both scholars and students the book is verystrong, and stand-out contributions come from John Xiros Cooper, onEliot's social critiques (pp. 287-97), and John Timberman Newcomb'sreconsideration of Eliot's influence as an editor (pp. 399-410), inwhich he notes the sometimes overlooked role Eliot played not onlyin British modernism but also, with Pound, in shaping the publicface of the likes of Oppen, Louis Zukofsky, and Marianne Moore. Thecollection as a whole, finely edited by Chinitz, will be anecessary reference for students." (Ywes, 28 August 2011)

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

"A Companion to T. S. Eliot is a necessity for anycollege or university library and a worthwhile investment for yourpersonal library. You will use it and reuse it, and you'llencourage your students to do the same. If Eliot's criticisminfluenced so much of what came after him, let's hope this volumeinfluences literary scholarship as it's practiced today, inspiringus to teach instead of dazzle, to value quality over quantity, andto "reduce, reuse, and recycle" in order to produce a moresustaining and sustainable body of criticism." (DavidsonCollege, Summer 2010)

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