Sample text

In the final days of January and the early days of February 1922, a complex process kept the completion of the Elegies intertwined with the beginning of the Sonnets. Of course, we have always known that the two works belong together. 2 An essay of this length can hardly do justice to such challenging works. For this reason, I will focus on two fundamental issues: the extent to which World War I is entangled with the two poems and the influence of Goethe and Kassner on both sequences of poems. 4 Like Goethe’s “Euphrosyne,” Kassner’s social philosophy functions both as a scaffold for the Elegies and a hinge connecting that ambitious work with the serendipitous Sonnets to Orpheus.

This relative neglect has occurred in part because it frustrated some readers for its idiosyncratic and sometimes socially and politically conservative angles, particularly after Eliot’s conversion to Anglo-Catholicism in 1927. Jason Harding points to several strong critiques of the journal, beginning with Lady Lilian Rothermere, who funded the magazine until 1927 when she withdrew her support after becoming “dissatisfied with the character of the journal” (2009, 390). Harding also cites Desmond MacCarthy’s complaint about the “‘Frenchified’ neo-Thomism he found on display in Eliot’s magazine,” and notes that even Eliot’s close friend and housemate for many years, Bonamy Dobrée, objected that “the Criterion had turned into a ‘Religio-Political Organ’” (2009, 393).
