Meticulously revised edition of key Eliot volume, presented for the very first time.
No one book has done more to define modern poetry than T. S. Eliot's Collected Poems 1909-1962. The pinnacle of a lifetime's curation by Eliot himself, it was first published in 1936, and then revised to form the present edition of the text, published in 1963. But throughout its many printings, discrepancies, authorial revisions and printers' errors have introduced anomalies that have served to undermine the authority of the edition.
Now, following years of careful scholarship and preparation for The Poems of T. S. Eliot by Christopher Ricks and Jim McCue, a reliable text has been established that enables a corrected and newly reset edition of Eliot's Collected Poems to be presented for the very first time.
Thomas Stearns Eliot was born in St Louis, Missouri, in 1888. He came to England in 1914 and published his first book of poems in 1917. He received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1948. Eliot died in 1965.
