The Complete Prose of T.S. Eliot: the Critical Edition

Senate House Library has a new electronic resource: ‘ the Complete Prose of T.S. Eliot: the Critical Edition ’, the first four volumes of which have currently been released.  The Project Muse website describes the volumes as gathering “for the first time in one place the collected, uncollected, and unpublished prose of one of the most prolific writers of the twentieth century…this…critical edition dramatically expands access to material that has been restricted or inaccessible in private and institutional collections for almost fifty years”.
