T. S. Eliot

Unseen essay by poetry legend to be published online

Previously unpublished prose, written by T. S. Eliot, is to be posted on a new website dedicated to the celebrated poet. The site is a collaborative effort between the poet’s estate and Faber & Faber, the publishing house where the poet was a director. One of the pieces that is to be featured on the site, an essay originally written in French, will be translated into English for the first time.

The site will also display hundreds of unpublished letters by Eliot, along with a collection of rare photographs taken by his late wife Esme Valerie Eliot. The letters, not included in volumes of Eliot’s letter in print, include correspondence with bank managers and tax inspectors.

Faber press director Henry Volans said he hoped the works would show all sides of the writer.

Poetry Project Update


It has been a few months since I’ve posted any new poetry to the page, this is because I haven’t written anything new. I’ve been far too busy writing for Songwriting magazine this year and my brain is overloaded and foggy (in a good way). Hopefully, over the next two months a time will come when some new lines emerge to the forefront of my mind, long enough for me to be able to share them with you all.

Until then, you will have to make do with the occasional piece of news from the literary world. I can’t allow the site to have months of inactivity, so news articles will act as educational-filler.
