5.0 out of 5 stars The Use of Poetry and the Use of Criticism, 23 Dec 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: The Use of Poetry (Paperback)
A fanastic, stimulating book, covering poetry and criticism from the Elizabethan to the Modern age. In these essays Eliot dedicates himself to his subject with unusal lack of "ifs and buts" (to invoke his own, all too accaurate description of himself in a poem). The book is full of challenging thought: perhaps most of all about writing poetry in general, and the development of the poet. These, as well as being very influential, also have the force that only a practising poet's statements can have -- if, of course, the poet has Eliot's gift for searching self-analysis.
