About the Authors
  • Of the many different kinds of anti-Semite, T. S. Eliot was the rarest kind: one who was able to place his anti-Semitism at the service of his art. Anthony Julius's critically acclaimed study looks both at the detail of Eliot's deployment of anti-Semitic discourse and at the role it played in his greater literary undertaking. Julius's seminal study has provoked a reassessment of Eliot's work among poets, scholars, critics and readers, which will invigorate debate for some time to come.

    • First book-length study of Eliot's anti-Semitism and its critical reception, in the context of his greater literary undertaking
    • Hardback review coverage included Newsweek, New York Times (daily and Sunday), New Yorker, The Times, Financial Times, Guardian, Observer, Independent, Independent on Sunday, Telegraph (daily and Sunday), LRB, and TLS. The book was also featured on The World Tonight (Radio 4) and mentioned on The Late Show (BBC2), etc.

    Reviews & endorsements

    '… a long overdue act of critical justice … Eliot studies will never be the same post-Julius.' Tom Paulin, London Review of Books

    '… a greater, and always a more honest, admirer of Eliot than those who habitually plaster him with saintliness … Julius's book is mould-breaking.' Frederick Raphael, The Weekly Standard

    'Julius has forced us to rethink some of our most fundamental, received ideas about art … an important - and long overdue - book.' The New York Times
