Summary "Richard Badenhausen examines the crucial role that collaboration with other writer's played in the development of T.S. Eliot's works from the earliest poetry and unpublished prose to the late plays
Examining a wide range of familiar and uncollected materials, Badenhausen explores Eliot's social, psychological, and textual encounters with collaborators such as Ezra Pound, John Hayward, Martin Browne, and Vivienne Eliot
Finally, this study shows how Eliot's later work increasingly accommodates his audience as he attempted to apply his theories of collaboration more broadly to social, cultural, and political concerns."--Jacket
He demonstrates Eliot's dependence on collaboration in order to create, but also his struggle to accept the implications of the process. In case-studies of Eliot's collaborations, Badenhausen reveals for the first time the complexities of Eliot's theory and practice of collaboration
