T. S. Eliot Studies Annual: Frances Dickey in conversation with Jahan Ramazani

The T. S. Eliot Studies Annual is the leading venue for the critical reassessment of Eliot’s life and work in light of the ongoing publication of his letters, critical volumes of his complete prose, the 2015 edition of his complete poems, and the forthcoming critical edition of his plays. Volume 4 of the Annual celebrates the centenary of The Waste Land, and also coincides with Eliot’s birthday on 26th September. To celebrate, we are making the following article free to read throughout September 2022:

It’s author, Jahan Ramazani, is a scholar and distinguished Professor of English at the University of Virginia, and joins our Editor, Frances Dickey, in conversation for an exclusive interview about his article and the ideas explored within latest volume more broadly. They discuss world elegy, its relation to The Waste Land, and consider the value of The Waste Land in helping us think about climate change and environmental losses. Lastly, Ramazani responds to the question, should Eliot be “cancelled”?
