Taking advantage of the biographical material on Eliot which has appeared in recent years, this book is an assessment of his career as poet and critic, and of the contrary impulses which shaped it. It examines how a Missouri-born American became the most prominent English man of letters of his lifetime, and explores the elements of rebellion and conformity, secrecy and openness, which manifest themselves in Eliot's life and work.
