Written for both specialist and non-specialist, this book examines T. S. Eliot's treatments of putting-in-other-words, including the necessity of putting ancient truth in 'new verse.' By means of fresh new readings of Ash-Wednesday and Four Quartets, G. Douglas Atkins carries his exploration of Eliot's religious thinking into bold new territory.
