Summary In this meditative and reflective philosophical, literary and social inquiry, first presented as invited lectures at the Institute for European Studies of the Jagiellonian University, Peter McCormick highlights the still largely overlooked conceptual and linguistic resources of the distinctive European high modernist poetry of suffering focusing on T.S. Eliot, Eugenio Montale, and Paul Valery for freshly rearticulating some of the most basic moral and ethical values at the historical roots of European civilization
