"As for stirring formulations about poetry, they are absent from [TS Eliot's] letters. He remarked to his spiritual counselor, William Force Stead, that he failed to see why so many people wanted to write about poetry: 'God knows why; it seems to me the dullest subject going.'" William H Pritchard • Weekly Standard "Since then the impression has been consolidated: Eliot was philosophically minded, stately and occasionally haughty, and yet an expert networker. From time to time he flirted with the possibility of an academic career. He allowed just a few friends to see his more playful aspects – among them a taste for the “minor pleasures of drunkenness and adultery”." Henry Hitchings • FT "If it were possible to run a software check on the book’s most characteristic phrase, it would undoubtedly be ‘I very much regret…’" DJ Taylor • Spectator
