Abstract

This paper arises from two convictions: the first that T.S. Eliot is a social critic whose theme is a disintegrating society; the second, that the corpus of his work is not autobiographical. I prefer to see him as a social critic whose topics are a disintegrating society, and the plight of man in such a society. My view of Eliot as a social critic arises from evidence about his temperament.
