Seamus Perry's elegant book is a critical tour-de-force. Perry's distinction as a reader of poetry pervades his many fine phrases and sentences as he brings out the amplitude of the poem s ambition with clarity, wit and nuance. This is a book to go to first, and many times thereafter, in thinking about and responding to Eliot s masterpiece of troubling but suggestive implication, shifting voices, and intricately orchestrated lyricism. --Michael O Neill, Professor of English, Durham University
