Notes towards the definition of culture by T. S Eliot( Book )

158 editions published between 1938 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 2,532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The word culture>, in recent years, has been widely and erroneously employed in political, educational, and journalistic contexts. In helping to define a word so greatly misused, T.S. Eliot contradicts many of our popular assumptions about culture, reminding us that it is not the possession of a class but of a whole society and yet its preservation may depend on the continuance of a class system, and that a "classless" society may be a society in which culture has ceased to exist. Surveying the contemporary scene, Mr. Eliot points out that our standards of culture are lower than they were fifty years ago, finds evidence of this decay in every department of human activity, and sees no reason why the decay of culture should not proceed much further. He suggests that culture and religion have a common root and that if one decays the other may die too. He reminds us that "the Russians have been the first modern people to practise the political direction of culture consciously, and to attack at every point the culture of any people whom they wish to dominate." The appendix includes his broadcasts to Europe, ending with a plea to preserve the legacy of Greece, Rome, and Israel, and Europe's legacy throughout the last 2,000 years."Behind the urbanity, the modesty, the mere good manners of Mr. Eliot's exposition, one cannot mistake the force and significance of what he has to say, or ignore that it constitutes a fundamental attack on most of our assumptions on the subject.">'THE LONDON SPECTATOR

He tries to sneak Colby into the house as his "confidential clerk" in hopes that the very eccentric Lady Mulhammer will decide to "adopt" him. As multiple parent-child identities are revealed, Eliot's modern verse play touches on the sources of longing and the need to be loved

The play was first performed at the Edinburgh Festival in 1958
Nightwood : the original version and related drafts by Djuna Barnes( Book )

87 editions published between 1937 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 1,889 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nightwood, Djuna Barnes's strange and sinuous tour de force, has become a classic of modernist and lesbian literature since its first publication in 1936. Set in Paris, Berlin, and Vienna during the decadent period between the two World Wars, Nightwood "belongs to that small class of books that somehow reflect a time or an epoch" (TLS)." "It is the story of Robin Vote and those she destroys-her husband the "Baron," their child Guido, and the two women, Nora and Jenny, who love her; the whole is illumined by the fantastic monologues of the renegade doctor Matthew O'Connor. Most striking of all is Barnes's unparalleled stylistic innovation, which led T.S. Eliot to proclaim the book "so good a novel that only sensibilities trained on poetry can wholly appreciate it," and The New York Times Book Review to assert: "Admired by Joyce, Nightwood is as important to the history of the 20th-century novel as Finnegans Wake-and more readable."--Jacket
