Professor Christopher Ricks will lead a careful exploration of T. S. Eliot writings. Focusing on the Collected Poems but also considering his letters and prose, this seminar will analyze Eliotís creative process by examining textual details as well as contextual reminders and re-establishings to discover how Eliot achieved the art of his poetry. He struggled to make his work appear effortless. In the details of that struggle we shall find the devils he defeated.
