    Reviews & endorsements

    'Moody's book seems to me the best, the most far-reaching, the most perceptive, book on Eliot. I know no other which is as helpfully devoted to Eliot, devoted, not devout.' Denis Donoghue, The Times Literary Supplement

    'An important and original study, which admirably generates fresh thought about Eliot.' Bernard Bergonzi, Journal of American Studies

    'Deeply studied and sensitive … this study reflects, and compels on the reader, great admiration and respect for the master'. W. W. Robson in The Sewanee Review

    'The most enlightening, most profound and, in some ways, most disturbing book about T. S. Eliot that I have yet read.' Norman Nicholson, Church Times
