Author Bio

T. S. Eliot

Thomas Stearns Eliot (born September 26, 1888 in St. Louis, Missouri) was a poet, playwright, and literary critic. His poem, The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, launched his name into society and initiated what became a masterpiece of the modernist movement. Several of Eliot’s poems are considered some of the greatest in English literature, such as Gerontion, The Hollow Men, and the Four Quartets. In 1948, T.S. Eliot received the Nobel Prize for Literature. He died in London, England on January 4, 1965.
