Pressestimmen

"'Each year Eliot's presence reasserts itself at a deeper level, to an audience that is surprised to find itself more chastened, more astonished, more humble.' Ted Hughes"

Kurzbeschreibung

Poet, dramatist, critic and editor, T. S. Eliot was one of the defining figures of twentieth-century poetry. This edition of The Complete Poems and Plays, published for the first time in paperback, includes all of his verse and work for the stage, from Prufrock and Other Observations (1917) to Four Quartets (1943), and includes such literary landmarks as The Waste Land, Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats and Murder in the Cathedral. 'Each year Eliot's presence reasserts itself at a deeper level, to an audience that is surprised to find itself more chastened, more astonished, more humble.' Ted Hughes

5.0 von 5 Sternen "Redeem the time/Redeem the dream" 29. Juni 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Eliot was a failure. That's right, a failure. He spent his whole life lamenting that the critics got him wrong. Ironically, Eliot had a decades-long feud with my other favorite writer, C. S. Lewis, because Lewis disliked Eliot's modern style. Yet I think much of what Lewis criticized in Eliot was based upon the standard critics' interpretations, rather than on what Eliot intended (does Prufrock not, prophetically, lament "That's not what I meant at all?"). Eliot may have initiated a new era in poetry, but what he initiated was a rebellion against 19th-century romanticism and liberalism. When studied on a deeper level than mere style, one sees that Eliot's poetry is at heart traditional and anti-Modern, overladen with Christian and Oriental thought. There is no better analysis of Eliot, in my opinion, than Russell Kirk's _Eliot and His Age_. Poems which the critics see as discussions of failed romance are actually laments about failure to appreciate art, and descriptions of the hell in which we live. Critics see a decline from "Prufrock" to "Ash Wednesday", but I (like Kirk) see the fulfillment of Eliot in his later poetry: he tells us what's wrong with the world, and then he points to a higher standard, "redeeming the time" as the voice calls out in "Ash Wednesday"

5.0 von 5 Sternen I own a first edition 5. Juni 2000

I bought this book back in college (I was premed). Of all the old books on my shelves, this one gets pulled out the most often. Like some of the other reviewers, I smile quietly when I see C. S. Lewis's criticisms of Eliot. They share a shelf in my home.

4.0 von 5 Sternen 3-star collection of a 10-star poet's work 17. Januar 2000
Von Carl Tait
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
T. S. Eliot was arguably the greatest poet of the 20th century, but this collection is far from ideal. Alert readers will have already noticed the ominous qualifier "1909-1950" in the title; this book does *not* include the last two plays ("The Confidential Clerk" and "The Elder Statesman"), the last Ariel poem ("The Cultivation of Christmas Trees"), or the handful of Occasional Verses included in "Collected Poems 1909-1962." In addition, the typography in this volume is claustrophobic in the early poems. TSE's style is concentrated and intense, and virtually every collection of his work has the sense to begin each poem on a new page. This book, unfortunately, is the exception: it crams the poems together like classified ads.
The One True Eliot Collection was never published in the United States: "The Complete Poems and Plays of T. S. Eliot" (Faber and Faber, 1969 and later reprintings). It's worth looking on for a used copy since this book contains virtually all the published poems, all five plays, and even "Poems Published in Early Youth." In the meantime, U.S. readers are better off skipping the 1909-1950 volume. Get "Collected Poems 1909-1962" and buy the plays separately -- along with Old Possum's Book of You-Know-Whats, if you insist.

Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
A wonderful collection of most of T.S. Eliot's poetry, including The Wasteland, The Hollow Men and Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats. Has extensive notes by the author. A must for all Eliot fans.
