Thomas Stearns Eliot's long process of self-definition as poet, critic, and dramatist is carefully elucidated in Bernard Bergonzi's dignified critical biography. Discusses Eliot's life in chronological phases, first to correct the misinformation that has been circulated about Eliot's earlier years; and, secondly, to demonstrate how the persistence of certain thematic and imagistic patterns in Eliot's work points not, as has often been concluded, to stasis, but to continuing reformulation and development. Includes an Index.
