Have you read the entire Divine Comedy? Or studied the philosophy of F. H. Bradley? Or meditated on the teachings of the Buddha? T. S. Eliot did, and he combined that learning (and a lot more) with his own genius to make some of the most inspired and notoriously difficult poetry in the English language.

 

We’ve taken it upon ourselves to make that poetry more accessible to students and first-time readers. Accessible Eliot is a free, multi-media, student-annotated, critical edition of the work of one of the Twentieth Century’s greatest literary minds. This is an ongoing project by students and for students that will continue to grow as more of Eliot’s work enters the public domain.
