Grover Smith
May 28, 2017

In this study, first published in 1983, Professor Smith makes the argument that although The Waste Land is analogous in form to a musical composition that it is actually made of its literary echoes.

T. S. Eliot's Romantic Dilemma: Tradition's Anti-Traditional Elements

1st Edition

Eugenia M. Gunner
May 23, 2017

The fact that Eliot disapproved of Romanticism is clear from his critical essays, where he often appears to reject it absolutely. However, Eliot’s understanding of the term and his appreciation of literature developed and altered greatly from his adolescence to his years of scholarly study, yet he...
