Today we are proud to launch tseliot.com, the official online home for the poet generally regarded as the greatest of the twentieth century.
Here you can read ‘The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock’ and The Waste Land in full, complete with detailed annotations. Or Eliot’s prose, some of it unpublished, with fifteen essays in full, including ‘Tradition and the Individual Talent’. You will also find over 500 of Eliot’s letters, annotated by Professor John Haffenden. And the site covers in detail Eliot’s role as editor of The Criterion, with facsimiles of the first and last issues, and his work as publisher at Faber & Faber.
Besides Eliot’s own words, the site features new essays on his life and work from authorities in Eliot studies, and is illustrated with some previously unseen photographs.
Our new site is also the online focal point for the activities of the T. S. Eliot Foundation. It hosts the T. S. Eliot Poetry Prize and will feature the announcement of the 2016 shortlist on 20 October, as well as news of future Eliot-related events and Foundation ventures.
We hope you enjoy the new site. Please contact us if you have any suggestions.
