In his old age T.S. Eliot said on a number of occasions that the American experience of his childhood and youth had had the deepest influence on his poetry. This is the first book to explore in detail how Eliot's writings at once preserved and reacted against his complex American heritage: his intellectually and socially prominent family, their strong Unitarian culture, and their experience in nineteenth-century St. Louis and Boston. Analyzing major poems from "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" through The Waste Land, and drawing widely upon the early philosophical writings, essays, and reviews, Dr. Sigg shows the influence on Eliot of major American figures such as George Santayana, Henry James, and Henry Adams, as well as of the British philosopher F.H. Bradley on whom Eliot wrote a doctoral dissertation at Harvard.

Book Description:

This is the first book to explore in detail how Eliot's writings at once preserved and reacted against his complex American heritage. Analysing major poems from 'Prufrock' through The Waste Land, Sigg draws upon Eliot's early philosophical writing, essays and reviews to reveal Eliot's early poetry both as a distinct entity and as a stage in his development.

Review:

"Sigg's subtly argued, well-conceived study fills a glaring gap that has existed in Eliot studies for some time. He not only offers a sensitive portrayal of a poet and his work, but forces us to reevaluate Eliot's relationship to his native tradition. It is an indispensable book." Richard Badenhausen, Modern Language Studies
