Very good condition paperback, unused. Reprint. "The purpose of this essay is to examine what there is in Eliot that can be ascribed to an abiding memory of Whitman. The contrast between the two men is of course obvious...But Eliot himself has left one handsome clue to encourage further research: the statesman of 'Coriolan' cries out for 'Cavaliers, O Cavaliers' in unmistakeable echo of Whitman's 'Pioneers! O Pioneers! ' In following this echo I have tried to do two things: in the first part of the essay to estimate the extent and kind of the general literary relationship...and in the second to record those elements in Eliot's poetry which seem to originate in a conscious or unconscious memory of Whitman." 93 pages.
Fine. 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" tall. A study which finds some surprising elements in Eliot "that can be ascribed to the abiding memory of Walt Whitman" despite the obvious contrasts in their personalities both in terms of a general literary relationship between the younger and older poet and in terms of specific elements in Eliot that seem to originate in a conscious or unconscious memory of Whitman.
