Summary
This major biography traces the life of the 20th century's most important poet from his childhood in the ragtime city of St Louis right up to the publication of his most famous poem, 'The Waste Land'. Meticulously detailed, it portrays a brilliant, shy and wounded American who defied his parents' wishes and committed himself to life as an immigrant in England, authoring work astonishing in its scope and hurt. Quoting extensively from poetry and prose as well as drawing on new interviews, archives, and previously undisclosed memoirs, it shows how T.S. Eliot's background in Missouri, Massachusetts and Paris made him a lightning conductor for modernity, as well as how deeply personal were the experiences underlying his masterpieces
