About this book

By comparing and contrasting the pre-conversion and the post-conversion poetics and poetic practices of T.S. Eliot, this book elucidates the responsibilities and opportunities for a poet who is also Christian. This book is the second in a trilogy which includes T.S. Eliot, Lancelot Andrewes, and the Word.

Reviews

"T.S. Eliot: The Poet as Christian has extraordinary moments. In richly adventurous and poetic prose, G. Douglas Atkins addresses a topic that deserves more scholarly attention: the incarnational impulse of Eliot's major poems." -Mark Jones, Professor of English, Trinity Christian College, USA
