    My Ph.D advisor Leonard Unger made his career on the first book studying TS Eliot s verse, in 1947, and to the end of his life, as a scholar and wit, he returned to Eliot s subjects, like 17C wits and Shakespeare as well as to Eliot himself, in Eliot s Compound Ghost, which strongly influenced my own dissertation, This Critical Age Deliberate Departures from Literary Conventions in Seventeenth Century English Poetry 1976 1981 I read much of On Poetry prior to graduate school, as an und My Ph.D advisor Leonard Unger made his career on the first book studying TS Eliot s verse, in 1947, and to the end of his life, as a scholar and wit, he returned to Eliot s subjects, like 17C wits and Shakespeare as well as to Eliot himself, in Eliot s Compound Ghost, which strongly influenced my own dissertation, This Critical Age Deliberate Departures from Literary Conventions in Seventeenth Century English Poetry 1976 1981 I read much of On Poetry prior to graduate school, as an undergrad at Amherst College, in courses on Criticism and in writing my senior thesis on The Uses of Prosody, on four 16 and 17C English poets, Wyatt, Spenser, Donne and Milton Eliot s reflections on Milton s poetry two essays here remark the Secretary of State s then called Latin Secretary, under Cromwell freedom with blank verse Eliot s remarks on Vergil s almost chance prominence in Christian poetry, especially the Fourth Eclogue which happened to mention the Virgin, and a child to be born to eternal life Eliot may also remark on Vergil s prosody, his alliterative hexameters, but I do not now recall half a century later In On Poetry and Poets, Eliot says a major purpose for contemporary poets is to meld in colloquial language without diminishing commonplace activities and thought I paraphrase, which my mentor L Unger never did At any rate, Eliot might have beentolerant than I for the colloquialisms of Rap, though I suspect he too would have considered it what Chaucer s Host asseses Chaucer s own terrible tale to be, Rime doggerel

    Ah, Eliot why can you write poetry and analysis so well Even when I m not familiar with the poet you re talking about, I still am interested Except when it comes to Samuel Johnson Sometimes there are just authors you know you ll never get to Johnson is one I much prefer Robbie Coltraine s portrayal of him in Black Adder Now that is how I d like to remember SJ Anyway, asides away, this classic I m daring to use that word collection of essays also acts as a good look into the mind of Ah, Eliot why can you write poetry and analysis so well Even when I m not familiar with the poet you re talking about, I still am interested Except when it comes to Samuel Johnson Sometimes there are just authors you know you ll never get to Johnson is one I much prefer Robbie Coltraine s portrayal of him in Black Adder Now that is how I d like to remember SJ Anyway, asides away, this classic I m daring to use that word collection of essays also acts as a good look into the mind of Eliot and how his poetics poetic eyes work Virgil is probably overpraised Byron is amusingly lauded and shunned, and for justifiable reasons perhaps the man was just better at sex than at pushing the future of the English language a bit closer to the light I shall always recall the lascivious lord via Hark a Vagrant s comic about him And man, is Eliot obsessed with the verse play I mean, come on Shakespeare kind of upset the apple cart for anyone wanting to go down that roadAt least Tom Sterns knew his limitations.Joking aside, a very worthwhile collection to anyone interested in literature, not even just poetry and poetics Eliot s writing will just showcase how to showcase your own enthusiasm about writers who indeed caress words into something grander than meer sentences

    The rating and this review are technically tentative because I have only read the first On Poetry section and the essay Virgil and the Christian World, which is most of the work anyway For that, Mr Eliot s perspective and thoughts, as well as his personality, impress and charm me I m holding off on reading his specific criticisms of authors in the second On Poets part because I d rather read those authors for myself first.

    The overall rating is tentative because only the first On Poetry section and the essay Virgil and the Christian World were read.
