T. S. Eliot, Anti-Semitism, and Literary Form Summary


T. S. Eliot, Anti-Semitism, and Literary Form by Anthony Julius

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.

T. S. Eliot, Anti-Semitism, and Literary Form Reviews


'... 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
