T.S. Eliot and Christian Tradition by Benjamin G Lockerd( )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 1,004 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eliot surprised his brother during a visit to Rome in 1926, when he fell to his knees at St. Peter's, and he surprised his Bloomsbury friends a year later when he was received into the Church of England. Many studies of Eliot's writings have mentioned his religious beliefs, but often without full consideration and understanding. This book presents the subject in rich detail, from a number of different perspectives, giving readers the opportunity to see the topic in its full complexity
Eliot and his age : T.S. Eliot's moral imagination in the twentieth century by Russell Kirk( )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though much has been written about T. S. Eliot since it was first published, Eliot and His Age remains the best introduction to the poet's life, ideas, and literary works. It is the essential starting place for anyone who would understand what Eliot was about. Russell Kirk's view of his older friend is sympathetic but not adulatory. His insights into Eliot's writings are informed by wide reading in the same authors who most influenced the poet, as well as by similar experiences and convictions. Kirk elaborates here a significant theory of literary meaning in general, showing how great literary works awaken our intuitive reason, giving us profound visions of truth that transcend logical processes. And he traces Eliot's political and cultural ideas to their true sources, showing the balance and subtlety of Eliot's views. Eliot and His Age is a literary biography that will endure when much of the more recent writing on Eliot is gathering dust
Aethereal rumours : T.S. Eliot's physics and poetics by Benjamin G Lockerd( Book )

9 editions published between 1988 and 2000 in English and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study combines ideas from many different disciplines and historical periods to yield a broad and penetrating analysis of T.S. Eliot's thinking about the relation between the material and spiritual worlds. Lockerd demonstrates that Eliot developed a poetic theory based on his antidualistic belief that mind and matter are not entirely separate, a theory that emphasizes natural symbols such as the elements and the seasonsnonarbitrary symbols rooted in our physical experience. The book thus offers a forceful response to those who would see Eliot as a precursor of so-called postmodern literary theory. Instead, Lockerd finds in Eliot's poetic theory and practice an attempt to achieve what is called in Four Quartets the "impossible union / Of spheres of existence.""--Jacket
