C.S. LEWIS DISCUSSES T.S. ELIOT

LEWIS, C.S. Autograph Letter Signed

1943.

A single sheet of letter paper written closely on both sides, to Rufus Buxton, who had written for advice about his own poetry. "I am quite incapable of helping people about this kind of poetry, 'modern' poetry in the technical sense...". On Eliot in particular, "My appreciation of Eliot himself... is v. limited" and "even when I get pleasure from him I am quite doubtful whether it is the type of pleasure he intends to give... I liked many of the images and disliked all the gnomic-cryptic passages ('your aloneness is not necessary') - but so do I in Eliot and I haven't the least idea whether I'm right in either case... I suspect the whole thing is a bit too like Eliot: but one wd have to be much more 'in the movement' than I am to say where fruitful discipleship ends and mere derivativeness begins." Rust mark to the top of the first page and a couple of stains to the rear.

Rufus Buxton, 2nd Baron Noel-Buxton (1917-1980) published several volumes of poetry including No Smooth Journey (1938) and The Ford (1955).
