T. S. Eliot

Eliot in 1934 by [[Lady Ottoline Morrell]] Thomas Stearns Eliot (26 September 18884 January 1965) was a poet, essayist, publisher, playwright, literary critic and editor. Considered one of the 20th century's major poets, he is a central figure in English-language Modernist poetry.

Born in St. Louis, Missouri, to a prominent Boston Brahmin family, he moved to England in 1914 at the age of 25 and went on to settle, work, and marry there. He became a British citizen in 1927 at the age of 39, subsequently renouncing his American citizenship.

Eliot first attracted widespread attention for his poem "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" in 1915, which, at the time of its publication, was considered outlandish. It was followed by ''The Waste Land'' (1922), "The Hollow Men" (1925), "Ash Wednesday" (1930), and ''Four Quartets'' (1943). He was also known for seven plays, particularly ''Murder in the Cathedral'' (1935) and ''The Cocktail Party'' (1949). He was awarded the 1948 Nobel Prize in Literature, "for his outstanding, pioneer contribution to present-day poetry". Provided by Wikipedia
