Remembering T.S. Eliot: "For last year's words belong to last year's language and next year's words await another voice."

Eliot, who died today in 1965, continues to be a force in literature. Henry celebrates his life with two works:

T.S. Eliot (Nobel 1948), Collected Poems 1909-1935 (Harcourt Brace & Co., 1936). Poetry was a young man’s game for Eliot; this volume sums up his life’s work. Hardcover, no dust jacket, very good condition. HBB price: $35 obo.

T.S. Eliot, Murder in the Cathedral (Harcourt, Brace & Co., 1935). Still performed, Eliot’s play envisions the murder of St. Thomas a’ Becket in Canterbury Cathedral on December 29, 1170. Hard Cover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First American Edition. 86 pp. Yellowed endpapers, with previous owner's name on front paste-down endpaper. Black cloth with gilt titles. Corners bumped, small dents along top edges. Burgundy and black DJ, not price-clipped. Spine and edges yellowed and lightly worn. VG/VG Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
