TS Eliot " Different Voices": Introduction


The poetic ideas that introduced "modernism" to the 20th century are echoed through contemporary readings and accounts of T.S. EliotÕs life and poetry.

This documentary about the life and poetry of the Nobel Laureate poet focuses on the role the poet's writing played in his own life. T.S. Eliot "...In Different Voices" celebrates his poetry through the voices of contemporary poets such as James Merrill and Amy Clampitt, as well as Sir Alec Guinness and Eliot himself.

Interpretations of the poet's character, struggles, and ambitions from scholar Frank Kermode and novelist Stanley Elkin make clear how Eliot's poetry gave voice to a whole generation of artists Š and still touches readers today.
