Eliot and His Age: T. S. Eliot’s Moral Imagination in the Twentieth Century by Russell Kirk. Sherwood Sugden and Company, Publishers (La Salle, Ill.), 1984. xii + 476 pp. $12.95 paper. Second edition with an introduction by Benjamin G. Lockerd Jr., ISI Books, 2008.
All great systems, ethical or political, attain their ascendency over the minds of men by virtue of their appeal to the imagination; and when they cease to touch the chords of wonder and mystery and hope, their power is lost, and men look elsewhere for some set of principles by which they may be guided.
