T. S. Eliot once spoke of a lifetime burning in every moment. He had the mind to conceive a perfect life, and he also had the honesty to admit he could not meet it. 'He was a man of extremes whose deep flaws and high virtues were interfused,' writes Lyndall Gordon in this perceptive and innovative biography of the great poet. She brilliantly explores his poetry, drama and essays in relationship to the four quite different women in his life and to his time in America and England. The Imperfect Life of T.S. Eliot follows the trials of a searcher whose flaws and doubts speak to all of us whose lives are imperfect.

T. S. Eliot memorably said that separation of the man who suffers from the mind that creates is the root of good poetry. This book argues that this is wrong. Beginning from Virginia Woolf's 'On Being Ill', it demonstrates that modernism is, on the contrary, invested in physical illness as a subject, method, and stylizing force. Experience of physical ailments, from the fleeting to the fatal, the familiar to the unusual, structures the writing of the modernists, both as sufferers and onlookers. Illness reorients the relation to, and appearance of, the world, making it appear newly strange; it determines the character of human interactions and models of behaviour. As a topic, illness requires new ways of writing and thinking, altered ideas of the subject, and a re-examination of the roles of invalids and carers. This book reads the work five authors, who are also known for their illness, hypochondria, or medical work: D. H. Lawrence, Virginia Woolf, T. S. Eliot, Dorothy Richardson, and Winifred Holtby. It overturns the assumption that illness is a simple obstacle to creativity and instead argues that it is a subject of careful thought and cultural significance.

Why Read Four Quartets

Why Read Four Quartets? is offered to encourage readers unfamiliar with T. S. Eliot's masterpiece to "take up, read, and inwardly digest" these beautiful and sacred poems. Commentary is offered to hopefully make the poems more accessible to a general reader. Most critics and commentators do not seem to take Eliot's own spirituality seriously, or at least they don't choose to comment on it. Literary analysis is often emphasized to the exclusion of viewing the quartets in a personal or biographical manner. In sharp contrast to these typical studies, this book endeavors to show that the quartets, along with his earlier post-1927 poetry (Ariel Poems and Ash Wednesday), can be read as the story of Eliot's own mystical journey to the Divine.

Four Quartets In The Light Of The Chinese Jar

Titled Four Quartets in the Light of the Chinese Jar, this is the first book that discusses how Four Quartets should be explored afresh with a prosodic-philosophically sustained interdisciplinary and cross-cultural literary approach in ways as the often overlooked pivotal image of the Chinese jar so indicates in the great sequence; the pivotal image suggests the subtle but vital elixir from both “The ‘shores of Asia and the Edgware Road’ [which] are brought together as they had been brought together to The Waste Land.” With a steady focus on the function words-mediated and phonemes-facilitated, and “autochthonously” void-suggesting verbal transformation, the book shows how the verbal transformation, especially of the cases with “parts of speech” in the live context, makes Four Quartets truly a “rhythmical creation of [meaningful] beauty”; it demonstrates how the meaningful poetic beauty culminates in a quintessential state or being of poetry not merely being “poetic” particularly in terms of its prosodically sustained philosophical tenets, which are often so serendipitously transformed into “virtuoso mastery of verbal music.” As genuine poetry, the great sequence flows freely from inside out at once in accordance with and in spirt of any given rhythmical form or rhyming pattern.

consciousness, and the life of emotions. The modernist artistic process, Cuda suggests, is a register of the mind's encounter with forces beyond its control." "Resuscitating the classical definition of passion from the Latin passio, "to be moved" or "to be acted on," Cuda's study demonstrates that the modernist attraction to passivity arises from a desire to gauge the limits of the active mind and to rethink psychology and aesthetics from the perspective of the moved instead of the mover. Focusing on well-known texts as well as uncollected and archival materials - such as Yeats's letters and Eliot's prose - Cuda sheds new light on four canonical writers by examining their work in terms of "passion scenes," vivid, intense tropes, situated somewhere between exhilaration and terror, that recur with insistent regularity over an artist's entire career, exerting an unusual psychological force on the creative mind that conjures them. Cuda also offers a corrective to debates about --

Patricia Sloane's study is a detailed reassessment of two of the poet's most provocative works that examine Eliot's allusions and larger purpose. In this close reading of the two poems in which Bleistein appears, Sloane shows that Burbank is an intricate derivation of Dante's Inferno. The book also includes a general introduction to Eliot's use of literary sources and to the introduction of the five poems.
