Patricia Sloane's study is a detailed reassessment of two of the poet's most provocative works that examine Eliot's allusions and larger purpose. In this close reading of the two poems in which Bleistein appears, Sloane shows that Burbank is an intricate derivation of Dante's Inferno. The book also includes a general introduction to Eliot's use of literary sources and to the introduction of the five poems.

This book is by far the most amazing piece of scholarship it has ever been my pleasure to come across. . . . Her book on T.S. Eliot is probably the best out there. I am certainly looking forward to the volumes to follow. -- Steven C. Scheer
