Widely regarded as one of the most important and influential poets of the twentieth century, T. S. Eliot was also extremely prolific. T. S. Eliot: The Contemporary Reviews is a testament to both these aspects of Eliot's work. In it, Jewel Spears Brooker presents the most comprehensive gathering of newspaper and magazine reviews of Eliot's work ever assembled. It includes reviews from both American and British journals. Brooker expands on the major themes of the reviews and shows how the reviews themselves influenced not only Eliot, but also literary history in the twentieth century.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Free of theoretical jargon, the contemporary journal reviews offer vigorous - often partisan, sometimes prescient - assessments. The inescapable diversity of viewpoints illuminates the capacity of Eliot's slender volumes both to shock and satisfy the age in which he lived.' The Times Literary Supplement
'... she can reasonably claim that her book as it stands illuminates 'the curve' of Eliot's reputation.' The London Review of Books
'... she can reasonably claim that her book as it stands illuminates 'the curve' of Eliot's reputation.' London Review of Books
'... the volume holds countless surprises ... Page after page in this judiciously edited book offers a richer, more nuanced sense of the dialogue that took place between Eliot and his contemporaries, a dialogue that was much more complicated than our increasingly stereotyped view of Eliot's career would allow ... an impressive scholarly achievement that will spark useful research and fruitful discussion for years to come. She deserves enormous credit for creating a volume that has wide implications for our understanding of Eliot's oeuvre, carefully registering the fascination and the misgivings that it prompted among his contemporaries. Anyone interested in Eliot's career will want to own this indispensable work.' Modernism/Modernity
