About the Author

Thomas Stearns Eliot was born in 1888. He was educated at Harvard, at the Sorbonne in Paris, and at Merton College, Oxford. His early poetry was profoundly influenced by the French symbolists, especially Baudelaire and Laforgue. In his academic studies he specialised in philosophy and logic. He settled in England in 1915, the year in which he married Vivienne Haigh-Wood and also met his contemporary Ezra Pound for the first time. After teaching for a year or so he joined Lloyds Bank in the City of London in 1917, the year in which he published his first volume, Prufrock and Other Observations. In 1919 Poems was hand-printed by Leonard and Virginia Woolf. His first collection of essays, The Sacred Wood, appeared in 1920. His most famous work, The Waste Land, was published in 1922, the same year as James Joyce's Ulysses. The poem was included in the first issue of his journal The Criterion, which he founded and edited.

I really love this selection, What can I say about this modernist master. His work is amongst some of the best out there and if you haven't read any than you owe it to yourself to check him out. This is just one of those things you want on your shelf. Eliot's poems are brooding and dense and moving like only the best poetry tuly is. I highly recommend this collection for people looking to get into Elliot and any collection of his work for that matter, he's great.
