An essay on the Nature of Poetry. From the author’s preface: “My one aim in this essay is to evaluate Eliot’s method and achievement as an artist, and in so doing to emphasize certain of the fundamental elements in the nature of poetry which are in danger of being obscured by the increasing tendency to treat poetry as a social document and to forget that it is an art.”
