An intellectual memoir, a lucid and illuminating account of Donoghue's engagement with the works of T. S. Eliot - from initial undergraduate encounters with The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock to later submission to Eliot's entire writings. "Donoghue has found a new way of combining autobiography and criticism, and the justification for the experiment is the maturity - the wisdom - of his commentary on Eliot's poetry." - Frank Kermode. Includes an Index.
