This is a study of Eliot's early poetry, including "The Waste Land". This body of poetry, including a considerable number of unpublished poems as well as many recently published but still little known, constitutes a distinctly modern form, the psychic monologue. It is fundamentally about interior conflict; not an "intellectual" poetry but a poetry about feelings, feelings that are ego-oriented and obsessively concerned with self-survival. Mayer argues that readers have not previously recognized the new poetic form of the psychic monologue, and his book forms an explication of this work.
