About the book:

Though much has been written about T. S. Eliot since it was first published, Eliot and His Age remains the best introduction to the poets life, ideas, and literary works. It is the essential starting place for anyone who would understand what Eliot was about. Russell Kirks view of his older friend is sympathetic but not adulatory. His insights into Eliots writings are informed by wide reading in the same authors who most influenced the poet, as well as by similar experiences and convictions.

Kirk elaborates here a significant theory of literary meaning in general, showing how great literary works awaken our intuitive reason, giving us profound visions of truth that transcend logical processes. And he traces Eliots political and cultural ideas to their true sources, showing the balance and subtlety of Eliots views. Eliot and His Age is a literary biography that will endure when much of the more recent writing on Eliot is gathering dust.
