The Complete Prose of T.S. Eliot: The Critical Edition gathers for the first time in one place the collected, uncollected, and unpublished prose of one of the most prolific writers of the twentieth century. The result of a multi-year collaboration among Eliot's Estate, Johns Hopkins University Press, and others, this eight-volume critical edition dramatically expands access to material that had been restricted or inaccessible for almost 50 years. The edition includes all of Eliot's collected essays, reviews, lectures, commentaries from The Criterion, and letters to editors. Other highlights include essays from his student years at Smith Academy and Harvard and his graduate work at Harvard and Oxford.
