ELIOT, T.S. Poetry and Drama

Faber & Faber, 1951.

First edition. Original red cloth, lettered in gilt to the spine, in the (supplied) dustwrapper. Inscribed on the front free endpaper to the poet's niece "to Theodora Eliot Smith from T. S. Eliot, 1.x.51". A very good copy in a very good dustwrapper, with a chip to the lower panel.

A wonderful family association copy, being a gift from Eliot to his niece, Theodora Eliot, the daughter of Marian Cushing Eliot, the favourite of his sisters.
The text is based on an address that Eliot gave in Harvard, 1950, the theme of which is the use of poetry in drama.
