Most analyses of T. S. Eliot's work focus primarily on his identification with the literary values of the modernist movement. In this study, however, Louis Menand also examines the crisis in literature that produced the entire modernist movement, and argues that the literary values of the nineteenth century became the problems of the twentieth century. He offers a new perspective on the complex phenomenon of literary change, and illustrates why the components of Eliot's work articulated the voice of Modernism. Readership: students and scholars of twentieth-century literature and poetry.
