This review is from: T.S. Eliot: A Life (Hardcover)
I agree with almost everything another reviewer, J. Mann, has written.
Amidst a lot of inconsequential detail, among which the frequency of his illnesses indeed stands out, I learned that he was widely acclaimed, and that he was awarded the Nobel prize for literature. But I gained no understanding of why he was so acclaimed or of what was distinctive about Eliot's sensibility. (I'm not familiar with his works.) These are critical omissions.
