Let Us Go Then, You and I

£7.99

Let us go then, you and I,
When the evening is spread out against the sky
Like a patient etherised upon a table;
Let us go, through certain half-deserted streets . . .
– The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock

As a poet, editor and essayist, T. S. Eliot was the most influential figure of his age, and one of the defining figures of the twentieth century. As well as winning the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1948, he was the author of Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats , providing the lyrics for Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical Cats , which has been performed all over the world for the past twenty-five years. His poetry is as relevant and revelatory today as it was when first published.

This selection, made by Eliot himself, includes many of his most celebrated works, including ‘The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock’, 'The Waste Land', and ‘The Hollow Men'.
