Reading is certainly a means of getting lost. It puts us in new situations, takes us to other locations and time, exposes us to new ideas and theories. What better writer to explore than "one of the twentieth century's major poets' and prolific writers through the Complete Prose of T.S. Eliot database? T.S. Eliot was a British essayist, publisher, playwright, literary and social critic.
This collection brings together hundreds of pieces by Eliot: essays, reviews, lectures, addresses, and transcripts, dating from 1905-1965. Many were previously unpublished and difficult to obtain. Hosted on Project Muse.
The fully searchable, integrative edition includes all of Eliot's collected essays, reviews, lectures, commentaries from The Criterion, and letters to editors.
More than 700 uncollected and 150 unpublished pieces include:
- essays from his student years at Smith Academy and Harvard
- graduate work at Harvard and Oxford, including his doctoral dissertation
- unsigned, unidentified essays published in the New Statesman and the Monist
- essays and reviews published in the Egoist, Athenaeum, TLS, Dial, Art and Letters
- his Clark and Turnbull lectures on metaphysical poetry
- Norton Lectures, Page-Barbour Lectures, Boutwood Lectures
- unpublished essays, lectures, addresses from various archives
- transcripts of broadcasts, speeches, endorsements, and memorial tributes
Each item has been textually edited, annotated, and cross-referenced by an international group of leading Eliot scholars, led by Ronald Schuchard, a renowned scholar of Eliot and Modernism. The volumes will be released in sequence and published on Project MUSE, with an archival print edition to be published once all eight volumes have been released.
