Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this "nuanced, discerning account of a life famously flawed in its search for perfection" (), Gordon captures Eliot's "complex spiritual and artistic history . . . with tact, diligence, and subtlety" (). Drawing on recently discovered letters, she addresses in full the issue of Eliot's anti-Semitism as well as the less-noted issue of his misogyny. Her account "rescues both the poet and the man from the simplifying abstractions that have always been applied to him" (), and is "definitive but not dogmatic, sympathetic without taking sides. . . . Its voice rings with authority" (). Praised by Cynthia Ozick as "daring, strong, psychologically brilliant," Gordon's study remains true to the mysteries of art as she chronicles the poet's "insistent search for salvation."
