Anglo-American Nobel Prize winner T.S. Eliot is one of the most important poets of the twentieth century. In addition to such innovative and powerful works as "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock," "The Wasteland" and the play Murder in the Cathedral, he wrote influential criticism and such light verse as "Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats," the basis for the musical CATS. This prize-winning biography elucidates both Eliot's personality and writing. David Case's effete, expressive British cadences and keen intelligence serve the text well. It's not always an easy read, but you'd never know it from Case's seemingly effortless delivery. Y.R. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 99]
