Young Eliot

Robert Crawford

Jonathon Cape

A meticulous biography of the life of renowned poet TS Eliot that reconstructs the young Eliot as he emerges from a rather unfamiliar US background into early manhood and the tumultuous years which produced his great later poetry. Writer Robert Crawford is currently Professor of English at St. Andrew’s University, has twice won the Scottish Arts Council Book Award and in 2007 won the Saltire Scottish Research Book of the Year Award for Scotland’s Books: The Penguin History of Scottish Literature.
