Abstract

"For the greatest poets have aspects which do not come to light at once; and by exercising a direct influence on poets centuries later, they continue to affect the living language." --T.S. Eliot, The Social Function of Poetry

T.S. Eliot's own statement of the truth of literary influence is the best insight into his own debt to tradition and, more specifically, into the aim of this study--tracing the influence of Dante upon Eliot.
