T.S. Eliot lives on almost every bookshelf. At times, you come across things you read, that can never disappoint anyone - that are unputdownable. Eliot's writings define that feeling. Known to be a great love poet, he was one of the few Modernist poets who dealt with subjects of longingness and loss in a beautiful way - bringing comfort to generations without fail.
