Ebook description:

T. S. Eliot drastically enhanced Dante’s profound affect on European literature. The essays on this quantity discover Dante’s significance by a concentrate on Eliot. Probing the questions what Eliot made of Dante, and what Dante meant to Eliot, the essays right here assess the legacy of modernism by partaking its “classicist” roots, masking a large spectrum of matters stemming from Dante’s relevance to the poetry and criticism of Eliot. The essays replicate on Eliot’s aesthetic, philosophical, and spiritual convictions in relation to Dante, his affect upon literary modernism by his embracing and championing of the Florentine, and his need to advertise European unity.The first part of the e-book offers with aesthetic and philosophical points associated to Eliot’s engagement with Dante, starting with Jewel Spears Brooker’s masterful essay on the ideas of quick expertise and main consciousness in Eliot’s work, and shifting on to essays contemplating his concept of a “unified sensibility,” in addition to Eliot’s engagement with Hindu-Buddhist and Christian themes and motifs. The second half of the e-book focuses on Dante’s significance to Eliot’s founding work in the modernist motion. In what methods did Dante instantly and not directly affect the exemplary path that Eliot blazed for his contemporaries, particularly Ezra Pound? How early did Dante’s affect present itself in Eliot’s work? Why was he unable to finish the nice trilogy he appears to have sought to put in writing, primarily based on Dante’s Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso?These questions and their solutions result in the e-book’s ultimate part, which considers Eliot’s (and Dante’s) function in the formation of a twentieth-century idea of Europe. Incisive essays on Eliot’s diversified sources of “custom” in his try to advertise the concept of a European union and his nervousness over the heritage of Romanticism are capped by a magisterial contribution from Dominic Manganiello displaying exactly how Eliot’s reformulation of the Dantesque “European Epic” continues to affect the work of Anglo-European and Commonwealth writers.
