Abstract:

"In T.S. Eliot: An Imperfect Life, Gordon brings fascinating new material together in one volume with the best of her earlier work. She draws on scores of recently discovered letters, and addresses in full the issue of Eliot's anti-Semitism as well as the less-noted issue of his misogyny, his "disgust with the flesh in conflict with repressed desires." She also provides an unparalleled portrait of Eliot's first wife, Vivienne, and a compelling exploration of the participation of other women in his work."--Jacket.
