“This essay is not an academic ‘introduction’; it is a personal account of the way in which the author, over many years, arrived at his understanding and appreciation of Dante. It is written for those who would like to know Dante, and who must begin as Mr. Eliot did, with ‘a traveller’s smattering of Italian, and a public-school knowledge of Latin’. It traces the process by which such a reader can proceed from enjoyment of single passages towards appreciation of the whole of Dante’s work”.—Dustjacket excerpt. [Suggest a different description.]
Author Bio for Eliot, T. S. (Thomas Stearns)
Thomas Stearns Eliot, better know as T.S. Eliot (1888–1965) was an American poet and dramatist. He exercised a strong influence on Anglo-American culture from the 1920s until late in the twentieth century. English poetry was revitalised through his experimentation. He threw out the old and created his own style.
The publication of Four Quartets led to his recognition as the greatest living English poet and man of letters, and in 1948 he was awarded both the Order of Merit and the Nobel Prize for Literature.--Encyclopaedia Britannica.
