Spirit of Vatican II

My comments on T. S. Eliot's prose writings are perhaps unjust. For Eliot's philosophical depth and subtlety, Christopher Ricks's "T. S. Eliot and Prejudice" (Faber, 1988) is a thought-provoking commentary. Eliot's macro-vision of society was incoherent, hence his incapacity to write long books, but his micro-observations are very searching, not least in their self-critical aspect.

Spirit of Vatican II

When, oh when, will we have a complete edition of Eliot's prose?
