Remembering T. S. Eliot:
September 26, 1888–January 4, 1965

231 words

Thomas Stearns Eliot was one of the 20th century’s most influential poets, as well as an essayist, literary critic, playwright, and publisher. He won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1948. Born in St. Louis, Missouri, from old New England stock, Eliot emigrated to England in 1914 and was naturalized as a British subject in 1927.

His principal poems are “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” (1915), “The Waste Land” (1922), “The Hollow Men” (1925), “Ash Wednesday” (1930), and “Four Quartets” (1945). His best-known play is Murder in the Cathedral (1935).

Eliot, like Ezra Pound, W. B. Yeats, Knut Hamsun, Wyndham Lewis, and many other great writers of the 20th century, was a man of the Right, although he never crossed “the line” into overt fascism. To learn more about his life, work, and metapolitical significance for the New Right, I recommend the following works published on this site:

  1. Kerry Bolton, “T. S. Eliot,” Part 1, Part 2, also included in More Artists of the Right
  2. Jonathan Bowden, “T. S. Eliot,” Part 1, Part 2, Q&A
  3. Jonathan Bowden, “T. S. Eliot: Ultraconservative Dandy
  4. Christopher Pankhurst, “Little Gidding
  5. Quintilian, “Why I Write: Putting the Pieces Back Together

The best collections of Eliot’s writings are The Complete Poems and Plays: 1909-1950, which is not actually complete, but the best one-volume selection; Selected Prose of T.S. Eliot, which is a good selection of his literary criticism, and Christianity and Culture, his principal work on religion and culture.

    If you’re ever in St. Louis, you can visit the final American house he lived in before moving to England for good, at 4446 Westminster, albeit only from the outside. There is a plaque on the sidewalk in front of the house denoting its significance. But, as far as I know, the house is currently privately owned and is a private residence, so be respectful in your looky-loo. And don’t go much far north of there, unless you’ve got some Marines as bodyguards.

    That house is within walking distance of where the McCloskeys live.

    Dear Greg Johnson,
    One of my favorite features of your webzine is the celebration of White-European men and women of the right. This feature attracts higher quality people and adds credibility to your webzine.

    Here are five other writers you should consider for remembrance. They are: Edgar Allan Poe, Robert Frost, Dr. William Olaf Stapledon, James Joyce and Dr. Thomas Kennerly Wolfe Jr.

    Thanks for all the hard work.
