I can't help thinking there is some confusion here
and we are really referring to the NY review of
the recent book on Eliot's love life.

Article argues that you cannot tell a poet by his or her spouse/lover et
cetera. I thought the article might dissuade further analysis of the
individual artist; and direct scholarship more towards an explication of the
artistry not of Eliot but his poetry. Not quite sure if that is possible in
this media-besotted age, but hopeful. (And, if I know this list, it is
probable that my last comment will trigger more replies than the
penultimate.) My apologies in advance: I have just thought since my
teenage years that Eliot's poems have a great "voice."
