Today, nearly 100 years after the publication of 'The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock,' The Sacred Wood, and The Waste Land, T.S. Eliot still suffers from the perception of being difficult to read. In this lively and accessible book, G. Douglas Atkins moves beyond the familiar 'deep' readings and challenges the familiar notion of Eliot as bent on escaping this world for the spiritual world. In line with the poet's own comparative procedures, Atkins reads him literally and laterally, attending to his intra-textuality. By finding meaning in new places, Eliot's commitment to the physical, tangible, sensory world appears beside the spiritual. These original interpretations culminate in the necessary, but seemingly impossible, union of reading, writing, literature, and commentary.
