"Eliot’s advocacy of John Donne helped make his reputation as a literary critic, in essays such as 'The Metaphysical Poets' in 1921. Five years later, however, 'Lancelot Andrewes' is structured as a comparison of the two 17th-century preachers, to Donne’s marked disadvantage. Donne, Eliot grants, is a more exciting and dramatic writer of prose than Andrewes; but that is exactly why he is spiritually inferior." Adam Kirsch • New Statesman
