Kirk elaborates here a significant theory of literary meaning in general, showing how great literary works awaken our intuitive reason, giving us profound visions of truth that transcend logical processes. And he traces Eliots political and cultural ideas to their true sources, showing the balance and subtlety of Eliots views. Eliot and His Age is a literary biography that will endure when much of the more recent writing on Eliot is gathering dust.
"Eliot and His Age offers what no modern study can: a substantial, biographically structured examination of T. S. Eliots work by a conservative thinker who knew the poet well." Robert Crawford, University of St. Andrews
"Eloquent and variegated testimony to Eliots greatness as a poet and also to his enduring value as a challenging critic and social thinker, as relevant today as he was eighty years ago." William Harmon, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
